The Australian Gold Nugget, also called a Kangaroo, is the traditional gold bullion coin minted by the Perth Mint.
The 2008 1/10 oz Gold Kangaroo features a hopping kangaroo with a joey in her pouch and grass beneath, design by Dr. Stuart Devlin.
The Gold Nugget series was introduced in 1986. This issue of coins had two unique features: a "two-tone" frosted design effect, and individual hard plastic encapsulation of each coin. These features were unusual for a standard bullion coin and gave the Nugget a unique market niche.
They have legal tender in Australia and are one of the few legal tender bullion gold coins to change their design every year.
