Enchanting Platypus Imagery

Obverse: Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is portrayed in a right facing pose on the obverse, wearing an intricate jeweled tiara. Inscriptions surrounding the royal portrait include “ELIZABETH II,” “NIUE 2022” “ONE DOLLAR” and “1 OZ 999 SILVER.” The initials “IRB” located directly below the effigy credit artist Ian Rank-Broadley for the design, which was created by the renowned British sculptor in 1998.

Reverse: The reverse features a vibrantly colorized underwater view of the ocean, as a contrasting frosted silver platypus dives with a splash below the water’s surface. Above the water line, a second platypus clings to a rocky outcrop, curiously observing its companion. Inscribed “AUSTRALIAN PLATYPUS.”
