Quick Overview

Selectively gold plated 20 cent coin

Details

Since the discovery of the platypus, its story has evolved from a scientific curiosity to a national symbol. Not only is it unique to our land, it is also one of only two kinds of monotreme, or egg-laying mammal, along with the echidna. Exquisitely represented in selective gold plating on the 20 cent coin in the Royal Australian Mint’s 2013 Six Coin Year Set, the platypus exemplifies the uniqueness of Australia’s currency and the native beauty it portrays.

The design of the standard 20 cent piece has remained unchanged since the introduction of decimal currency in 1966. In the proof version of this collectible and commemorative set, it is accompanied by proof pressings of the 5 cent, 10 cent, 50 cent, $1 and $2 coins and their familiar designs. To mark 2013, the six coin proof set features a selectively gold plated 20 cent piece, which brings our familiar platypus design swimming into life and highlights the uniqueness of one of Australia’s most famous mammals.
