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 1/10thoz.

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

The words "THE AUSTRALIAN KANGAROO" are displayed across the top of the coin. (Since 2008, the Perth Mint changed the name of the gold bullion coin from "The Australian Nugget" to "The Australian Kangaroo.")

The year of issue, weight and purity of the gold coin are displayed around the perimeter of the coin.

Note: The Australian Gold Nugget coins should not be mistaken for The Australian Lunar Gold Bullion coins.

Both coins are minted by The Perth Mint and have .9999 purity, but the Lunar coin uses images of different animals from the Chinese calendar each year instead of the kangaroo.
