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


1990 - 2011




The Perth Mint introduced the 1/20th oz. gold bullion coin in 1990, following the introductory release of Gold Nugget bullion coins in 1986 (now known as the Australian Kangaroo); however, the mint discontinued minting the 1/20th oz gold bullion coin in 2011.

Nugget to Kangaroo,
A Change in Design,
then Name

In 1986, when The Australian Nugget gold bullion coin was released, the reverse side of each individually sized coin had its own design of a large Gold Nugget found in Australia.

Then, in 1990, The Australian Nugget's reverse side of the coin was redesigned to feature the "Australian Kangaroo."



Oddly, even though the reverse side of the coin changed from a nugget to a kangaroo in 1990, it wouldn't be until 2008 when the Perth Mint officially changed the name of the gold bullion coin from "The Australian Nugget" to "Australian Kangaroo."  (coin photos courtesy of The Coin Page.)


Note: The reverse designs on the 1-kilo., 10oz., and 2oz. Gold Australian Nugget bullion coins had the same design as the 1-kilo. Gold Australian Kangaroo bullion coin does today, a Red Kangaroo.
