1/2 oz. Australian Gold Kangaroo (Nugget)
Bullion Coin

1987 - Present





The Australian Gold Kangaroo bullion coin is one of the Perth Mint's most popular coins.

When the Gold Nugget (Kangaroo) 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.

For example, the first three years that the 1/2oz. Gold Nugget bullion coin had on its reverse side the design of the "Hand of Faith" Gold Nugget found in 1980.

Nugget to 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, 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.

The reverse of the 2018 1/2 oz. gold bullion coin portrays a pair of kangaroos bounding across a stylized landscape, with the sun above them.

1/2oz. Australian Gold Kangaroo - REV

At the bottom of the Australian, Gold Kangaroo bullion coin is the bullion coin's Year of Issue, the weight of "1/2 OZ." and purity of "9999 GOLD."

Behind the higher leaping, Kangaroo's tail is the letters 'NH,' representing the initials of 'Neil Hollis' the designer of the 2018's reverse side of the coin.

Located above the head of the lower leaping kangaroo on the 2018 Australian Gold Kangaroo bullion coin is the Mint Mark of "P" representing The Perth Mint.

The edge of the gold bullion coin is Reeded.

Note: The Australian Gold Kangaroo bullion coins are sometimes 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.
