1oz Royal Australian Mint Beneath the Southern Skies (2021 Platypus) Silver Coin (Tube of 25 coins)
This latest bullion coin release from the Royal Australian Mint is based upon a design draft created in 1964 by the late Stuart Devlin. Devlin was a highly distinguished Australian designer, artisan, goldsmith, and silversmith. His work still appears on much of the country’s circulating coinage. Over his lifetime, Devlin also designed coins and medallions for countries throughout the world.
The Royal Australian Mint has revived this historic design submitted to the mint by Devlin as Australia underwent decimalisation in its move away from British currency.
It’s resurrection from Devlin’s old draft archives provides collectors and investors worldwide the opportunity to honour his legacy and freshly appreciate his phenomenal artistic creativity.
These Royal Australian Mint Beneath the Southern Skies 1 oz Silver Coins come in tubes of 25 coins. The minimum order size is 1 tube. Coins can be ordered in any multiple of 25.

Her name, the nation of issue, and the date of issue are all inscribed on this side with a global design in the background showing the longitudinal and latitudinal lines of the planet.
