Product Description

Here's a beautiful and eminently affordable way to own .9999 pure gold!

Sold out at the Mint!The kangaroo is one of the definitive symbols of Australia, the island continent. Each year the Perth Mint releases a Gold Nugget / Kangaroo coin with a new obverse, with a one-year-only depiction of this herbivorous marsupial, made all the more desirable by the Mint's execution in 4 9s pure gold, artistically rendered in a reverse proof finish with frosted fields and mirrored devices. Even better is the price! Leave it to the Perth Mint to make the luxury of a .9999 fine gold proof affordable for everyone!

A grey kangaroo with her young joey in her pouch, attentive and alert!Australia is also known for the incredible size and shape of gold nuggets found in the outback. In fact, the largest gold nugget ever found, the Welcome Stranger, was found in 1869 in Victoria, Australia. Its gross weight was 3523.5 troy ounces, so it was more like a gold stone than a gold nugget! The largest gold nugget still in existence, the Hand of Faith, was also discovered in Australia, in 1980, by a metal detectorist. It weighs 874.82 troy ounces.
