Comments

In 1999 the RAM updated the standard circulation Platypus 20 cent coin with the Ian Rank Broadley 4th Portrait of the Queen on the Obverse. The coin has also been issued in Uncirculated & Proof Year Sets, UNC in WMF Berlin Money Fair Sets, and various Baby UNC & Proof sets. Specimen versions of the coin were issued in Wedding Sets from 2002 to 2009. From 2010 all Wedding Sets were Proof issues. 2019 is the final year for the IRB Obverse.

The 2001 issues featured 3 different versions of the IRB Initials, "IRB" joined, "IRB" spaced and "RB" Joined.

Fine Silver (.999) Proof versions of the coin have been released in the Masterpieces in Silver 1998 Set & Fine Silver Proof Sets in 2004 & 2009 onwards.
