Australian 1 oz. Gold Kangaroo (Nugget)
Bullion Coin

1987 - Present


In 1987, one year after the U.S. Mint introduced the American Eagle gold bullion coins, The Perth Mint introduced its first gold bullion coin - the Australian Gold Nugget.

The coins have legal tender status in Australia and they are one of few legal tender bullion coins in the world that annually changes its design.

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

For instance, for the first three years the 1 oz. Gold Nugget Bullion coin was minted, the reverse side featured the"Welcome Stranger" Gold Nugget found in 1869.

Gold Nugget to Gold Kangaroo
A
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.
