Australian Gold Nugget / Kangaroo

  • Australian kangaroo gold coin
The Australian Gold Nugget is one of the world’s purest minted gold bullion coins.  The Gold Nugget began production in 1986 and is minted by the Gold Corporation, which is owned by the Western Australia government. The first several versions of the Gold Nugget’s design depicted gold nuggets on the reverse, giving the coin its name. In 1990, the reverse design was altered to feature one of the sixty different species of the Australian kangaroo, changing every year.  For this reason, the coin is often referred to as the gold kangaroo coin.

Australian Gold Nugget Coin Design

Australian gold nugget or kangaroo coin
The Gold Nugget began production in 1986 and is minted by the Gold Corporation, which is owned by the Western Australia government.  An appealing aspect of the Gold Nugget is that while the obverse of the coin retains the design of Queen Elizabeth II of England on a yearly basis, the reverse is redesigned every year.

This and their limited annual mintage may, unlike for many other bullion coins, raise their numismatic value over the value of gold used.

Another unique feature of the Gold Nugget is its two tone frosted design, giving it a unique look and adding both to its rarity and numismatic value. Additionally, each Gold Nugget is covered in a hard plastic shell for extra protection, helping to retain its aesthetic qualities and warrant high numismatic grading.

For rare gold coin investors and collectors alike the pure gold content, annual design changes and various size options are qualities that drive demand for the Australian Gold Nugget coin and maintain its status as an international favorite.
