The Type II twenty cent was issued from 1985 up until 1998 and featured the new Raphael Maklouf portrait of her majesty Queen Elizabeth II on the
obverse, with Stuart Devlin's platypus design on the reverse. Devlin's initials (SD) can be found within a swirl near the platypus' foot. The series was struck exclusively at the Royal Australian Mint in a cupro-nickel
with an additional silver
produced in 1991 as part of the year's Masterpieces in Silver set.
