The Platypus and the Perth Mint

Here in West Wales, spring is well and truly in bloom, so my apologies for the low post rate of late.

I’ve been out and about hiking the Pembrokeshire coastal path and enjoying this rare patch of lovely weather.

While perusing the latest silver coin releases from the cobbers over at the Perth Mint in Australia, I stumbled across this cute as a button Duck Billed Platypus half ounce proof from their Bush Babies II series.

If you fancy grabbing a few of these you may have to act quickly as this issue has a limited mintage of only 10,000 coins.

If you are ordering from the UK the Perth Mint offer free shipping wordwide on any order over $400 Australian dollars.

Their next release in this series is the Wombat, which I imagine will be just as cute as this one.
