Perth Mint 2016 Bullion Coin Program
Nugget or Kangaroo?
Until 1990 the coins featured famous gold nuggets on the reverse and were referred to as 'nuggets'. From 1990 onwards the design changed to feature a kangaroo instead. For this reason the coins may be called nuggets, kangaroos or 'roos.
The Perth Mint have released a silver version of the coin - the 2016 1oz Silver Kangaroo.
No more than 100,000 1/2oz coins, 150,000 1/4oz coins and 200,000 1/10oz coins will be produced. Mintage of the 1oz and 1 kilo coins is unlimited.
