What is the History of Gold Kangaroo Coin?

In 1987, the year of the last Wall Street crash, The Perth Mint introduced the Australian Nugget 1 oz gold bullion coin. The Perth Mint is entirely owned and backed by the Western Australian Government.

The first release featuring an image of the world’s largest gold nugget, the 2,284 oz ‘Welcome Stranger’ Nugget, which was found in Victoria in 1869. For the next three years, other significant natural nuggets were showcased on this unique program.

Since 1990, The Australian Nugget has carried different portraits of the uniquely Australian animal – the kangaroo – and as a result, it has become known as the Australian Kangaroo.

The Australian Kangaroo Gold Coin now features a new design of Australia’s most famous marsupial – the kangaroo – each year. The only exception is the large 1 kilo size release, which maintains a classic kangaroo design created by Dr Stuart Devlin, AO, CMG, goldsmith and jeweler to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. This and the reasonably limited mintage adds a degree of collectibility to Kangaroo gold coins. 

The Perth Mint is fully owned by the Western Australian state government. The mint operates Australia’s largest gold refinery and one of the world’s largest gold refineries. It also mints legal tender gold and silver coins on behalf of the Australian Commonwealth Government, and a range of silver and gold bar products.

The Perth Mint refinery is on the LBMA’s good delivery list for both gold and silver good delivery bars, and on the CME’s Comex approved refinery list for gold bars.

GoldCore only sells gold coins from trusted government mints such as The Royal Mint, The Austrian Mint, The U.S. Mint, The South African Mint, The Royal Canadian Mint and The Perth Mint.
