Australian Gold Nugget Coins

1993 1/4 Troy Oz Proof

99.99% Gold

This coin bears a special privy mark depicting the Chinese symbol of prosperity, "Fok".
The Whiptail Wallaby was chosen for the 1993 design.
Only available in attractive jarrah presentation when originally issued, these do not turn up very often at all.


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.
