The Australian Kangaroo is one of the best-selling gold products in the world. The yearly changing images on the coin makes them popular with collectors and investors alike. Published by the prestigious Australian, Perth Mint, it is one of the oldest and most recognisable mints in the world. It produces some of the purest gold and silver bullion products available on the market. The mint was originally founded in 1896 as a branch of the British Royal Mint. They first published the Gold Nugget in 1986 due to the South African Krugerrand import ban. The coins initially depicted images of iconic gold nuggets discovered on the continent.
In 1989 the image on the coin changed to that of a Kangaroo, making it more recognisable as a product of Australia.
