First issued in 1987 the Australian Nugget gold coins show a golden nugget; largest gold nugget ever found with 2,284-oz. But since 1990 the coins show a different Kangaroo for each year. Only in 2008 the inscription was changed from “Nugget” into Australian Kangaroo. The Kangaroo gold coin is one of the most known and circulated coins produced by the World famous Perth Mint in different sizes all 24 carat or 999.9/1000 pure.

Design and Production of the Australian Nugget/Kangaroo Gold Coin

The Perth Mint is part of Gold Corporation an autonomous institution wholly owned by the Government of Western Australia. The Perth Mint is located in the centre of the city of Perth, the capital of Western Australia.

The Perth Mint has manufactured gold coins since 1899. The Perth Branch manufactured its first gold coin, a British sovereign, in 1899. Over the next 32 years until 1931, it issued more than 106 million sovereigns and nearly 735,000 half sovereigns, all with the distinctive “P” mintmark. The success story continued with minting decimal coins until 1984. In 1987 the Perth Mint was culminated into Gold Corporation and then expanded its range of precious metal products. In addition to gold bullion coins the Perth Mint also mints silver and platinum bullion coins (1988) adding palladium in 1995.

On the 23rd of April 1987 the Australian Nugget coin was officially launched in Sydney showing a gold nugget. In 1990, although the coins were still called “The Australian Nugget”, the design on the reverse side was changed to depict a kangaroo (as an internationally recognized symbol of Australia and its wildlife). Since that time, a kangaroo design has appeared on each coin, but changes annually on the coins, 1 oz and less. A 1/20 oz bullion coin, launched in 1990 was issued until 2009.

As the designs on the coins change annually in order to offer a supplementary collectable dimension, they are also referred to as Bullion Collector Coins.

In 1990 - 1994, the Standard Bullion Coins depicted each year on the reverse side a different species of kangaroo, inscribing its name below the kangaroo design.

Since 1995, a generic representation of one or more unnamed kangaroos has been depicted with the design changing annually. In 2008, the inscription The Australian Nugget was changed to Australian Kangaroo on coins, 1 oz and less. The 1 kg coin adopted the new inscription in 2011.

All coins are packaged individually in a durable acrylic case to protect it from rough handling.

To underpin the supplementary collectability of Australian gold bullion coins, a maximum mintage is declared for nominated sizes at the beginning of each year:
