Australian Gold Kangaroos

Each of these finely-detailed coins is issued in individual round plastic capsules from the Perth Mint, and since 1987, each year features a different portrait of Australia’s most famous animal.

The Kangaroo is now one of the best buys in bullion coins, since the Perth Mint has sharply discounted its premiums on the 1-ounce gold Kangaroo.

Gold Australian Kangaroo

Introduced in 1986 as a .9999 fine bullion coin. Each year the design is changed, since 1989 with various portraits of kangaroos. The current year Australian Gold Kangaroos that we sell here are in their original protective round plastic cases, as issued by the Mint.

Australia’s Australian Gold Kangaroo Nugget series of bullion coins was launched in 1987 by Gold Corporation, which is wholly owned by the government of Western Australia. From its beginning, this issue of coins had two unique features: a ‘two-tone’ frosted design effect, and individual hard plastic encapsulation of each coin. For a standard-price bullion coin, these features were unheard of, and served to position the Nugget as a product offering a lot of value for a standard bullion price. At first, these coins pictured on the reverse side a famous Australian gold nugget.

Well, maybe pictures of gold nuggets are recognizable in Australia, like pictures of baseball players here in America. But to most of us, the gold Nuggets from 1986-1988 pictured lumps that looked like meteorites, or maybe just clods of dirt.

Thankfully, in 1989, this design was changed to feature different Kangaroos, a more world-recognized symbol of Australia.

Another aspect of the bullion coin market touched on by Australia was the introduction of 2-, 10-, and 32.15-ounce (kilogram) bullion gold coins. These larger sizes have been imported into the U.S. from time to time since their initial production. The large sizes are also produced in silver and platinum versions. The Australian Gold Kangaroos are meticulously-made, individually packaged 99.99% pure coins with a lot of ‘eye-appeal’ for the bullion buyer.
