Following the successful release of the 1oz. and the other fractional Australian Gold Nugget bullion coins, the Perth Mint, in 1990, added one more fractional bullion coin to the series.

The 1/20th oz. gold bullion coin was added to the bullion coin series, but The Perth Mint has not minted the smallest Gold Kangaroo (Nugget) gold bullion coin, since 2011.
