The Australian Gold Nugget is a gold bullion coin minted by the Perth Mint. The coins are available through Bleyer in denominations of 1/10oz, 1/4oz, 1/2oz, 1oz of 24 carat gold. The nugget has legal tender status in Australia and is one of few legal tender bullion gold coins to change their design every year, another being the Chinese Gold Panda. This and their limited annual mintage may, unlike for many other bullion coins, raise their numismatic value over the value of gold used.
Gold Nugget Coin series was introduced in 1986 by Gold Corporation, a company wholly owned by the government of Western Australia, more commonly known by its trading name The Perth Mint. This issue of coins have two unique features: a "two-tone" frosted design effect, and individual hard plastic encapsulation of each coin. These features are unusual for a standard bullion coin and give the Nugget a unique market niche.
From 1986 to 1989, the reverse of these coins pictured various Australian gold nuggets. With the 1989 proof edition, the design was changed to feature different kangaroos, a more world-recognised symbol of Australia. The coins are today more commonly referred to as "
Gold Kangaroo Coins". On the obverse face there of each coin is a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II.
The Perth Mint is listed as an active Good Delivery Refiner by the London Bullion Market Association.
