All the important features of the Australian Gold Coin Series
The Perth Mint has been in charge of producing all Australian gold coins, silver coins, platinum coins and palladium coins since 1987. The Australia Kangaroo series is still minted today at the same historic location as the first British Sovereign coins were back in 1899. At that time, the mint was operated by the Royal Mint (London) as a branch in Perth.
Australia as a global player on the international gold market
Australia has already experienced the "Gold Rush" three times. First in the 1850s when the first large gold discoveries were recorded in the eastern states and then also in the west of the country during the 1890s. Most recently, Down Under experienced a national gold rush in the 1980s. In 2012, gold output was a whopping 250 tons.

Since the designs on the coin are slightly changed every year and a new edition appears, the limited production gold coins are also called collector coins.
Large bullion coins
Only at the Perth mint are 1kg, 10 ounce and 2 ounce bullion coins produced. The large coins were first released in 1991 and the 1kg gold coin was the largest precious metal coin of the last century, which was also authorized as legal tender.

Since 1987, Australian bullion coins have had a matte finish. This matte finish is a beautiful mostly milky effect used to distinguish the proof coins from the circulation coins.

The History of the Australian Series
On April 23, 1987, the Australian Nugget bullion coins of 1 ounce, 1/2 ounce, ¼ ounce and 1/10 ounce were unveiled by then Australian Prime Minister R.J Hawke in Sydney. During the years from 1987 to 189, the Australian gold nugget (as an international symbol of gold) was struck on the reverse of the gold coins of those denominations. Each of the 4 coin denominations featured a different gold nugget.
The Australian Kangaroo Series, once Australian Nugget
In 1990, the coin still bore the name Australian Nugget, although from then on, instead of the nugget, a kangaroo was minted on the bullion coin to symbolize Australia and the continent's diverse flora and fauna. Since then, the kangaroo symbol has been retained on the gold coins, with only slight annual changes.
in 2008, the inscription on all gold coins of denominations of 1 oz or less was changed to "Australia Kangaroo", as the coins had already been colloquially referred to as such for some time due to the kangaroo symbol. The inscription on the 1 kg coin was changed accordingly in 2011.
Largest gold coin in the world is the golden kangaroo
The masterpiece of a 1 ton gold coin can be viewed as an impressive exhibit by visitors to the Perth Mint. This solid gold coin was produced by the Perth Mint in 2011 to demonstrate innovation, ingenuity and, most importantly, the coin maker's world-class technical skills.
The one ton coin was officially unveiled by Western Australian Premier Colin Barnett on October 26, 2011 and has an incredible value of 1 million Australian dollars (equivalent to approximately 700.00 euros). The amount of gold processed is about 32150.7 troy ounces.
