Issued by the Perth Mint, the Australian Nugget is among the most quality bullion issued in the world. Founded in 1896, the Perth Mint is the oldest in Australia. It has been a leading force in developing the gold industry in Australia. In addition, it is responsible for producing most of Australia’s legal tender. Under the jurisdiction of Britain until 1970, the mint is now owned and operated by the Australian government.
Introduced in 1986 by the Gold Corporation, the Gold Nugget series is comprised of coins with two unique features – the first being its two-tone frosted design, and the second being the hard encapsulation of each coin. Any coin from the Gold Nugget series is considered to be viable, legal tender in Australia.
Each Australian Nugget contains 1/10 oz. of .999 gold bullion. In addition, the coin measures 20 mm in diameter and approximately 1 mm in thickness with a face value of $25.
From 1986-1989, the reverse image featured on the coin was an Australian gold nugget. However, in 1989, the design was changed to feature the kangaroo, Australia’s unofficial national symbol. The observe side of the coin features an image of Queen Elizabeth II, designed by Ian Rank-Broadley. Elizabeth II is the present-day monarch of Australia.

" Got my Nugget today and I am very pleased to have finally get one as they are not that common. Better yet, it is a first year (1986). I need to point out that the description of the coin is in error. The coin itself is not 20mm. It is very slightly over 16mm. The plastic holder is slightly bigger than 20mm. I place all my Gold Bulion rounds in Airtite Holders with foam rings. All that being said, I am Not giving it back because of a typo. HAPPY HAPPY JOY JOY!!"
