2012 Australian One Tonne Gold Nugget Coin

In 2012 the Perth Mint issued a one tonne gold coin - the largest and most valuable coin ever produced.

With a face value of $1,000,000 Australian dollars it is already more money than most people can afford, but that is nothing compared to the coins intrinsic (actual) value - a whopping £24,164,000,00!*

*Intrisic value based on gold at £751.21


The coin is part of the popular nugget series (also known as Kangaroos). The obverse features Queen Elizabeth's portrait, whilst the reverse depicts the red kangaroo.

If you are interested in the coin please contact us. We will be unable to quote a firm price, as we do not have it in stock, but we will be able to give you an indication.

For interested collectors or investors, for a refundable deposit of 1%(say 250,000) we will commence negotiations with the Perth Mint for a firm price or premium indication. We would suggest a minimum guide price starting at 25 million.


As you can imagine, we have no idea how to transport a one tonne coin. We checked with Royal Mail but the size and weight of the coin more than exceeds their limits. We are sure that we will be able to find a way.
