Australian Gold Nugget Sets The Australian Gold Nugget series of bullion coins was introduced in 1987 by Gold Corp., an entity entirely owned by the Western Australian Government. Struck from .9999 fine Gold, the Gold Australian Nugget is among a few major pure Gold bullion coins to change their reverse design annually.
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 this bullion coin series to life. The Australian Nuggets vary in design and are meticulously made.
