This First Day Cover recognizes the uniqueness of the Australian Platypus. Its characteristics such as being able to live in water and on land, its duck bill, tail and short squat legs, made the first English scientists to sight this creature to believe it was some sort of trick or hoax. Unable to fathom how a creature so odd could exist. Further giving the Platypus its own identity it is one of only 2 Monotremes (egg-laying mammals) known to exist. The Austalian Echidna is the other, both species are protected. With the Perth Mint Produced $1 coin accompanied by matching theme stamps and cover photo of this Australian Native.
