Australian Gold Nugget Coins

1998 1/20 Troy Oz Unc

99.99% Gold

For all Perth Mint bullion issues, specimen (brilliant uncirculated) coins carry the reverse design of the previous year's proof issue with only the date changed in an almost "reverse proof" format. The easist way to distinguish between a proof or specimen is the design, if the design is frosted its a proof, if the design is polished, its a specimen..
These 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.
