The 1996 The Gold Kangaroo published by Australia's oldest mint,  Perth Mint. Established in 1899, Australia decided to manufacture their own coins after the import ban of Krugerrands in 1986.

The coins have become world famous for their high purity level, and their beautiful designs. Along with the Chinese Gold Panda, the Australian Kangaroo/Nugget coins are one of the few legal tender bullion coins that change their design each year.

Coins published up until 1989, featured images of  the famous gold nuggets found on the continent during the 1800’s till 1980. However in 1989, the image was changed to that of the recognisable Kangaroo, an animal native to Australia. However, coins have also featured the closely related Wallaroos and Wallabies. The change over to using an image of an animal made the coin more marketable, and appealing to investors and collectors.


The 1996 1oz coin features the image of a Kangaroo standing, looking over its right shoulder. There is a joey sitting to the left, facing forward. The weight, purity, year, and ‘The Australian Nugget’ is inscribed around the edge.

The obverse of the coin features a right facing effigy of Queen Elizabeth II, which was designed by sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley.
