Following the successful release of the 1oz. and the fractional sized Australian Gold Nugget bullion coins, in 1987;  The Perth Mint, in 1991, added three more gold coins to the series, the 2oz., 10oz., and the 1 Kilogram gold coins were added to the Gold Nugget series of coins.

The 2oz. and 10oz. gold kangaroo have not been minted, since 2009.

ten oz gold obv

The obverse side displays the profile of Queen Elizabeth II struck in proof-like quality.

This side of the coin displays around the outer perimeter of the coin, the denomination of the coin "1,000 DOLLARS", "AUSTRALIA", and "ELIZABETH II".

Note: 1991 was the first year the gold 10oz. size of the Australian Gold Nugget bullion coin was released.

For that first year the 10 oz. bullion coin had the face value of "2500 DOLLARS." Starting in 1992 to the present day, the gold 10 oz. bullion coin has had the face value of "1000 DOLLARS."

The words "THE AUSTRALIAN NUGGET" are displayed across the top of the coin. 

In 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 bullion coin are displayed around the perimeter of the gold bullion 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 Lunar coin uses images of different animals from the Chinese calendar each year instead of the kangaroo.
