Australian Gold Coins

The Perth Mint in Australia sells Australian Kangaroo gold coins which are also called Australian Gold Nugget coins and the Australian Lunar series gold coins.

Both gold coins are made of 99.99% pure gold. One side features a Kangaroo design or a Chinese Lunar design and the other side features a portrait of the Queen.

They are un circulated one ounce of pure gold coins. Australian gold coins are the only major legal tender, pure gold bullion coins to change their design each year. This feature and their limited annual mintages give them potential for numismatic appreciation over time. The year date also changes annually.

- Annual design changes
- An Australian government guarantee of 99.99% gold purity and a weight

- They also have a superior quality of finish, which incorporates delicate proof-like frosting within the central design area.
