From Gold Nuggets to Gold Kangaroos

Although the Australian Gold Nugget series has been discontinued, it actually paved the way for the much beloved Australian Gold Kangaroo series that investors jump for.  During its first four years of issuance from 1986 through 1989, the series displayed large and famous gold nuggets on different sizes of its proof and uncirculated versions.  Such gold nuggets include Welcome Stranger, Pride of Australia, Hand of Faith, Golden Eagle, Little Hero, Ruby Well, Welcome, Jubilee, Poseidon, and Golden Aussie.

Beginning in 1990, the series retained its name of Australian Gold Nugget but featured the iconic design of a red kangaroo by Dr. Stuart Devlin that now graces the 1 oz Silver Kangaroo, 1 oz Platinum Kangaroo, and the 2 oz, 10 oz, and 1 kg Gold Kangaroos.  Each successive year, the series would feature a new kangaroo design on the reverse until 2008 when the name of the series was officially changed to the Australian Gold Kangaroo.   

Australian Dollars and Troy Ounces

Buyers who want in on Australia’s gold coins may opt to explore the Australian Gold Nugget in a weight suited to their investment style.  The Perth Mint released the coin in many different size increments and corresponding face values.

Weights ranging from 1/10 oz to 1 oz were available from the series’ initial release. 

The 2 oz, 10 oz, and 1 kg weights were added to the series in 1991 as a way to keep premiums low through the same economies of scale principal affecting different sized gold bars.  The following year, the face values of these larger weights were changed to keep them relative to that of the 1 oz coin.
