Australian 1/20th oz.
Gold 
Kangaroo (Nugget) 
Bullion Coin


When the Gold Kangaroo (Nugget) 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.

In 1990, the design on the reverse side of the gold bullion coin changed to the "Australian Kangaroo" and the design has changed each year, since.

Following the successful release of the 1oz. and the other fractional Australian Gold Kangaroo (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.
