1 kilo. Australian Gold Kangaroo (Nugget) Bullion Coin

1991 - Present





The one-kilo Australian Nugget / Kangaroo gold bullion coins were first minted in 1991 by The Perth Mint.

Since the one-kilo gold bullion coins were first minted the reverse side has always shown the same depiction of the iconic Red Kangaroo surrounded by rays of sunlight

However, for the first three years of minting, the reverse side of the 1oz. and fractional gold Australian Nugget / Kangaroo bullion coins had a design of a Gold Nugget found in Australia.

In 1990, the reverse design changed for the 1oz. and fractional bullion coins to a Kangaroo.

But, unlike the 1oz. and fractional sized bullion coins, the 1-kilo. Australian Kangaroo bullion coin's design has not changed since it was originally produced.

The smaller versions of the Gold Kangaroo bullion coin receives a new design, each year, for the coin's reverse side.

A new kangaroo design is released each year for the for the gold bullion coin's reverse side in these sizes 1oz., 1/2oz., 1/4oz. and 1/10oz.

The 10oz., 2oz. and 1/20thoz. versions of the Gold bullion coin have not been minted since 2009.
