The platypus is one of the most unique animal species from a continent on planet Earth that is already known for its one-of-a-kind diversity. A semiaquatic, egg-laying mammal, the platypus is the last living member of its family and genus, with all other related species extinct. The platypus has been a popular figure on Perth Mint coinage since its introduction on platinum coins.
