The Perth Mint is famous for the production of wildlife-themed silver and gold bullion coins. Prior to the movement that launched these coin designs in 1990, the mint issued its first-ever gold bullion annual series with the gold nugget as the focus of its design themes. The nugget was produced largely from 1986 to 1989, with a commemorative 150th-anniversary set released in 2019 as well. Provident Metals now has Proof Australian Nugget 4-Coin Gold Sets available to you for purchase online.
When you buy the Proof Australian Nugget 4-Coin Gold Set available in this Provident Metals listing, you receive those coin sets inside of wooden display boxes from the Perth Mint with a Certificate of Authenticity accompanying the set. The coins include proof visuals with mirrored background fields and frosted elements.
The obverse face of Proof Australian Nugget Gold Coins in this 4-coin set includes Queen Elizabeth II. Although the coins all showcase Queen Elizabeth II in varying portraits depending on the date mark, all of them depict the Queen in right-profile relief. British tradition dictates that monarch portraits switch visual reliefs with each monarch. King George VI, the father of Queen Elizabeth II, was depicted in left-profile relief on coins of the Commonwealth. As such, all coins now issued by Britain, Australia, and other Commonwealth nations show Queen Elizabeth II in right-profile relief.
On the reverse side of the gold coins in the Proof Australian Nugget 4-Coin Set is the Australian gold nugget depiction. The most popular gold nugget depiction used on Perth Mint coins was the Welcome Stranger Nugget. The Welcome Stranger Nugget was the largest of its kind discovered in Australia and was found just inches underneath the dirt in 1869.
