Australian Gold Nugget Coins
1989 1/10 Troy Oz Proof
|1989 was the first year that the kangaroo was introduced to the
Perth Mint's gold coins and the same design was then used on all sizes, but continued
to change annually.
The "P" mint mark is also incorporated into the Red Kangaroo design.
Only available as part of 2 & 4 coin sets when originally issued, these can sometimes be found individually.
These coins are the only major legal tender, pure gold coins to change their design each year. This feature and their limited annual mintages give them potential for numismatic appreciation over time.
All coins are legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965 and bear an effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination on the obverse .
