Australia Struck Gold!

The Australian Gold Nugget Coin

The Perth Mint, originally an off shoot of the Royal Canadian Mint, struck gold with the Australian Gold Nugget coin in 1986. The series began with a four-coin proof set. These coins were the first gold coins to carry the “P” mintmark of the Perth Mint since Britain dropped the gold standard in 1931.

Australian Gold Nugget coins are symbolic to the original gold nuggets found in Australia. Each coin showcases a notable nugget.


1 oz coin = “Welcome Stranger” nugget

1 oz 1986 coin = “Welcome Stranger” nugget

½ oz coin = “Hand of Faith” nugget

½ oz 1986 coin = “Hand of Faith” nugget







¼ oz coin = “Golden Eagle” nugget

¼ oz 1986 coin = “Golden Eagle” nugget

1⁄10 oz coin = “Little Hero” nugget

1⁄10 oz 1986 coin =  “Little Hero” nugget







These designs became the standard for the bullion version, which was launched the next year, while the proof gold coin set featured new designs.

Paying in Gold? Better Have Change for that!

In 1987, a bullion version of the Gold Nugget was introduced, standardized using the designs from the 1986 proof coins. The proof continued to have new designs each year. For instance, in 1987 featured:

  • “Poseidon” Nugget
  • “Bobby Dazzler” Nugget
  • “Father’s Day” Nugget
  • “Golden Aussie” Nugget

In 1988, “Pride of Australia,” “Welcome,” “Ruby Well,” and “Jubilee” had their 15 minutes of fame!

Yet, in 1989 it all changed! 1989 marked a change for the Australian Gold Nugget, as kangaroos replaced gold nuggets on the reverse of the PROOF sets. The original design showcased a Red Kangaroo in a sunburst.

However, the bullion Gold Nuggets continued with the 1986 nugget designs for one more year They switched over to the kangaroo designs in 1990. Also, this year also marked the debut of the 120 troy ounce coin. Thus, making the Australian Nugget the first five-coin gold bullion proof set!

Australian Gold Nugget - Kangaroo

Various Years and Designs of the 1 oz Australian Gold Nugget Coin – Kangaroo Design

Moving forward, 1991 saw the introduction of the 2 oz, 10 oz, and 1 kg Gold Nugget coins. These coins retained the old name of “Gold Nugget” and original Red Kangaroo design. While the 1 oz and smaller coins became the Kangaroo with changing kangaroo images.

Sadly, 2009 marked the last year the 2 oz and 10 oz Gold Nuggets were minted. Then two years later, the 120 oz Gold Kangaroo was retired. But surprisingly, a one-time Australian Gold Nugget coin was struck in 2011. Breaking World News!
