Introducing the 2018 1/2oz Gold Nugget Kangaroo 2018
The Perth Mint launched its Gold Nugget collection in 1986. The term 'nugget' references the country's historic outback gold mining industry and the original reverse design (from 1986 to 1989) featured various depictions of gold nuggets. The 1989 proof Gold Nugget was the first to feature the kangaroo, an Australian icon that's recognised around the globe, and by 1990 the Gold Kangaroo had replaced the nugget. The kangaroo is the world's largest marsupial and the red kangaroo is the largest of the four species that inhabit the grassy plains and woodlands of Australia. Its image was first used on the Australian penny over a century ago.
Although officially the Gold Kangaroo, this famous gold coin is still referred to as the Gold Nugget or the Nugget Kangaroo. A good alternative to larger coins, each 1/2oz 2018 Gold Kangaroo Nugget is struck from .9999 pure gold and showcases the new reverse design – a pair of red kangaroos leaping across a grassy plain with the outback moon in the background. The obverse carries Sir Ian Rank-Broadley's well known coinage portrait of HM Queen Elizabeth II.
