The Australian Gold Nugget (Kangaroo) was first introduced in 1986 by Gold Corp, also commonly known as the "Perth Mint". With a unique "two-tone" frosted design, it was one of only a few bullion gold coins whose design was changed every year, similar to the Chinese Gold Panda. With a limited annual mintage, and it's unique design, a Gold Nugget has a higher semi-numismatic value than some of its other bullion rivals.
With the exception of 1986 to 1989, when the coins featured the imagery of various Australian gold nuggets, the central design is of a kangaroo, which was considered to represented the country better. The nugget coins are also known and referred to as "gold kangaroos". With a fineness of 0.9999 gold purity, they have legal tender status in Australia.
