One of the newer collections of bullion coins from the Perth Mint is the Platypus Series. While the platypus has featured on platinum coins from Perth Mint for several years, gold and silver bullion options are newer choices. In fact, Perth Mint goes so far as to offer the gold and silver Platypus Coins with distinctive weights of either 1/4 oz gold or 1.5 oz silver. Provident Metals now has 2021 Australian Platypus 1/4 oz Gold Coins available to you for purchase online.

When you purchase one of these 2021 Australian Platypus 1/4 oz Gold Coins online from Provident Metals, you will receive a coin that is in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. Coins in this series are available with protective plastic capsules. Multiples of these coins will come sealed together in a plastic roll of 20 coins.


The obverse side of 2021 Australian Platypus Gold Coins features an image of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is captured here at the age of 89 in this 2015 design from Jody Clark. Created for the Royal Mint as its fifth-generation effigy, this image is actually the sixth of the Queen to feature on the obverse of Australian coins. The field includes inscriptions of ELIZABETH II, AUSTRALIA, 1/4 OZ 9999 AU, 2021, and 25 DOLLARS.


On the reverse face of the 2021 Platypus 1/4 oz Gold Coin is a depiction of the platypus as it swims underneath the water. While you cant see the water or waves, you get the sense of depth based on the lilypads that float above the head of the platypus as it swims underneath. The inscriptions on this side include AUSTRALIAN PLATYPUS, 2021, and the P mint mark of the Perth Mint.


The Perth Mint offers the coins in the new Platypus Series with these 1/4 oz gold coins and a 1.5 oz silver bullion coin. The Platypus Series is based on an existing series of platinum bullion coins available to investors for several years.
