A gold bullion coin known as the “Australian Gold Nugget”, this coin has its design changed every year which is partly why it is so famous. It is considered one of the most famous gold coins and has a purity of 0.9999. Despite the name, these are not actually nuggets but rather solid gold coins which depict images of the Australian kangaroo. The Perth Mint is the one who creates these unusual but rather remarkable coins, and many individuals desire to collect them. What makes the coins doubly attractive to some is how and why the design changes every year.
Due to their popularity, these coins are very quick to disappear from widespread availability. However, while the demand for these coins is high, it is not expected for them to be very popular with collectors in the future for anything other than sentimental values to add to their collection. Purchasing them individually will also add to the bill an individual will face and therefore it would be far wiser to purchase them in groups if possible.
The coins are without a doubt one of the most attractive and beautifully rendered coins which have ever been minted. They are simple yet elegant and captures the spirit of the Kangaroo is many different poses in this faraway land. They are considered legal tender and have been officially tested for weight and purity, but the coins are priced slightly higher than their worth in order to regain some of what has been put into the making of the coins. It is also important to note that all of the coins bear a small effigy of Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse and this never changes even though the coin’s front changes every year to allow for a new design.
