Australian Gold Nugget Coins

2002 1 Troy Oz Unc

99.99% Gold

1989 was the first year that the kangaroo was introduced to the Perth Mint's gold coins and the same design was then used on all sizes, but continued to change annually.
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.
