Lucky platypus geocoin

au-bronze-font.jpgA few special antique gold coins have been minted for community purposes including Lucky#3.

Lucky is a real platypus. I heard about him in the local papers in 2003 He walked up to someone and asked for help to get a plastic bag off his poor neck – this is weird for a notoriously shy animal . Platypus have been known to starve to death with those plastic bottle rings caught around their bills – they are surprisingly small animals.

Lucky #7 is a one of a kind error coin – he has green text unlike his siblings and he will be auctioned for charity later along with Lonestar – another unique bimetallic error coin with a single silver star.
