1/4 oz. Australian Gold Kangaroo (Nugget)
Bullion Coin

1987 - Present





The Australian Gold Kangaroo (Nugget) bullion coin is one of The Perth Mint's most popular coins.

When the Gold Nugget / Kangaroo bullion coin was originally released in 1987, the reverse side of each individually sized coin had a design to itself of a Gold Nugget found in Australia.

For instance, the first three years that the 1/4 oz. Gold Nugget Bullion coin was minted, the reverse side had the design of the "Golden Eagle" nugget, found in 1931.






Change in Design,
then Name

In 1990, the design on the reverse side of the gold bullion coin changed to the "Australian Kangaroo."

In addition, unlike the 1 kilo. bullion coin, each year the 1oz. and fractionally sized gold bullion coins receive a new design of a Kangaroo.

Ultimately, in 2008, the Perth Mint changed the bullion coin's name from "The Australian Nugget" to the "Australian Kangaroo."

Due to the gold bullion coin's proof-like finish and its limited mintage figures, this bullion coin has the potential to appreciate beyond the value of its gold content.
