Australian Gold (Nuggets & Kangaroos) 2014 & Prior
Australian Gold Nuggets & Gold Kangaroos - The Australian Gold Kangaroo/Nugget series of bullion coins was introduced in 1987 by Gold Corp., an entity entirely owned by the Western Australian Government. Since their introduction, these coins were unique in that they featured a "two-tone" frosted design effect and came sealed in an individual hard plastic cover. Issued as Australian legal tender, the Gold Kangaroo is a favorite item among collectors and investors worldwide.
The obverse of the Australian Gold Kangaroo bears a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. However, the reverse has undergone changes since the coin's release. At first, the reverse of these coins depicted an Australian Gold nugget. In 1989, the design changed and instead featured a more widely recognized symbol of Australia: the kangaroo. An iconic representation of the fascinating wildlife inhabiting Australia, the Australian kangaroo brings the Gold Kangaroo bullion coin series to life. The Australian Kangaroos vary in design and are meticulously made. Struck from .9999-fine Gold, the Gold Australian Kangaroo is among a few major pure Gold bullion coins that change their reverse design annually. Many of the Gold Kangaroos come individually packaged.
Australian Gold Kangaroos are issued in 1, 1/2, 1/4, and 1/10 oz, and 1/20 oz sizes with face values in Australian dollars. In addition to these typical sizes, the Gold Kangaroos have also been released in larger sizes, including 2 oz, 10 oz, and 32.15 oz (kilo) Gold coins.
