Darryl Bellotti has portrayed many Australian animals in a distinctive style for coins released by The Perth Mint. Recently he focussed on the platypus, a unique animal highly-revered in Indigenous culture. This video looks at the freshly unveiled 2011 Platypus Dreaming coins, while Darryl talks about his approach to the design. It also includes footage of the extraordinary platypus – a creature that combines mammal, reptile and bird-like characteristics!
