Australian Gold Coins & Bars

Perth Mint Gold at Provident Metals

Gold is arguably the most valuable asset for investors and collectors who are looking to add precious metals to their investment portfolios. While there are many mints worldwide that offer great gold investment products, few are as popular as the Perth Mint in Australia. Featuring a wide array of products from unique gold coinage series to gold bars, learn all about the gold bullion products offered from the Perth Mint, right here at Provident Metals.

Australian Kangaroo Gold Coins

The Australian Kangaroo Gold Coin can be traced back to the Australian Nugget from 1986. After first featuring a gold nugget on the reverse, the design was updated to feature a kangaroo in 1990.

Australian Kangaroo Gold Coins, like other annual releases from The Perth Mint, feature a unique image of the animal in each new release. The obverse, regardless of the year of issue, always showcases the effigy of the reigning British monarch. In 2024, King Charles III made his appearance on the obverse.

Gold coins in the series can range from 1/20 oz all the way up to 1 kilogram (32.15 Troy oz) coins. However, the more popular options in this series are the coins that range from 1 oz to 1/20 oz.

In 2010, the Perth Mint introduced 1/2 Gram Mini Roo Coins in the Australian Kangaroo Gold Coin Series. These small gold coins have a face value of $2 (AUD) and stripped-down design sets.

Australian Koala Gold Coins

One of the more popular coin programs offered by the Perth Mint is the Australian Koala Gold Coin Series. The series began in 2007 with a silver coin, gold coins debuted the following year. These coins showcase a unique image of a Koala and a eucalyptus leaf with every release.

Gold coins in this series were initially only offered in proof strikes. The first year of release saw the debut of a 2 oz, 1 oz, 1/10 oz, and a 1/25 oz proof option in gold. The series has since expanded to include a 1/4 oz and a 5 oz option. In 2023, a 1/10 oz gold BU version was made available.

As mentioned above, every release features a unique image of a Koala in its natural habitat. The design is shared across the silver and platinum coins as well. The obverse of these coins displays the effigy of the reigning British monarch. This includes King Charles III which was first seen in 2024.

Australian Kookaburra Gold Coins

Similar to other popular coin programs offered by the Perth Mint, the Australian Kookaburra Gold Coin features a unique image of a Kookaburra on every issue. While the image always changes, it always showcases the bird in its natural habitat. The obverse of these coins showcases the effigy of the reigning British monarch.

A 1/10 oz BU coin has been released annually since 2020. The series also offers larger sizes such as 1/4 oz, 2 oz, and 5 oz coins with a proof finish. The 1/10 oz BU releases are packaged in individual flips while the larger proof coins in the series were issued with presentation boxes.

Other Perth Mint Gold Coinage

  • Lunar Gold Series: Like most mints, the Perth Mint offers a Lunar Series of coins alongside the Chinese zodiac. This series started in 1996 and ran until 2007. Once the cycle started over in 2008 the Perth Mint continued with new designs for each animal starting in 2008, appropriately calling it Lunar Series II. Lunar Series III started in 2020 with gold coins in various sizes from 1 oz to 1/20 oz being released annually.
  • Wedge Tail Series: The Wedge Tail Series from the Perth Mint was introduced in 2014 and has been released annually since. The series initially issued just silver coins before a 1/10 oz gold version debuted in 2016. This series showcases a unique image of a Wedge Tail Eagle with every release.

Perth Mint Gold Bars

The Perth Mint makes gold bars in an array of sizes from 1 Gram to 1 Kilogram. In most cases, minted ingots will arrive individually sealed with an assay card confirming the authenticity of the gold bar. Included with this is a serial number and the signature of the chief assayer.

Perth Mint Gold Bars typically include identifying information about the bar, including the Perth Mint logo, on one side. The reverse can range from blank design fields to a repeating kangaroo pattern.
