Australian Gold Kangaroo Coins

The 1 oz Gold Kangaroo and Gold Nugget bullion coins from The Perth Mint have evolved over time, showcasing a journey of artistic creativity.

In 1986, The Perth Mint introduced the Gold Nugget series, with the release of the 1 oz Gold Nugget coin. The design on the reverse side of the coin featured various images of Australia's iconic gold nuggets. The obverse side featured a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Subsequent releases of the Gold Nugget coins continued to feature different images of notable gold nuggets found in Australia's history. These coins were popular among collectors and investors due to their unique design showcasing the country's gold mining heritage.

In 1990, the Mint revamped the program, updating the reverse design to feature Australia's most recognizable marsupial, the kangaroo. The new design depicted a kangaroo in various poses, often set against the backdrop of an Australian landscape. In 1991, the Mint introduced fractional Gold Kangaroo coins, and in 1992, added a 2 oz and 10 oz Gold size. This range of sizes allowed investors and collectors to choose coins that suited their preferences and investment goals.

Over the years, the design of the Gold Kangaroo coins continued to evolve, with new artistic interpretations of the kangaroo and variations in the background elements. Each year's design added a fresh touch to the series while maintaining the kangaroo as the central motif.

The 1 oz Gold Kangaroo coin, as well as the other sizes, have gained popularity not only for their gold content but also for their numismatic value. Collectors are drawn to the series due to its changing designs and limited-edition releases. The Gold Kangaroo coins also hold international recognition and are traded on the global precious metals market, contributing to their reputation as a sound investment option.
