    Platypus usually go under water :) so you need the scuba gear to search the thread.

    It was only after I posted that I realised how old the thread was..

    I think we should all have a few Platypus in the stack.

    I went to buy a 2013 and they offered me a 2011 for the same price. Couldn't pass that up!

    And yes, it was a site sponsor :)

    Surprising, it'd be interesting to hear from a Perth Mint representative about this

    The platypus have a rather significant premium over spot.
    How well does it retain its premium upon resale?
    Any experience from members here?
    Is it worth getting the platypus or one should rather stick with lower premium stuff?
    Don't know much about platinum.

    I love the design of the Australian Platinum Platypus.

    I am in Australia.

    The price above spot at the moment is around $120 - compared with PAMP bar $100 and Baird and Co $70.

    Probably not massive in terms of percentage.

    I always try to buy low premium as usually only get spot on resale.

    Only get spot maybe from a dealer, probably get your premium back if you want the risk and hassle of selling here
    There are also meets in capital cities.
    I've bought Platipi from forum here and paid the premium to the member who's selling
