The reverse design depicts a red kangaroo in a classic stance looking over its left shoulder. The animal is standing near a fenced field against a magnificent background of flowers, trees and mountains. The year of issue, the weight and purity "2014 1/10oz 9999 GOLD" are stamped along the bottom rim. "AUSTRALIAN KANGAROO" is inscribed across the top of the rim, with the "P" mintmark placed to the right of the kangaroo's tail.
On the 23rd of April 1987 the Australian Gold Nugget coin were introduced in Sydney depicting the largest gold nugget ever found on its reverse, a rock containing 2,284oz of gold. 1oz Nugget gold bullion coins released between 1987 and 1989 depict the popular natural gold nuggets discovered in Australia. The 1/10 denomination had the inscription "Little Hero" below the rock.
Since 1990, although the coins were still officially called "Australian Nuggets", the reverse side of the coin pictures a red kangaroo, designed by Stuart Devlin. Ever since, the kangaroo motif has appeared on all Gold Kangaroo coins as an internationally recognized symbol of Australia, but designs change annually on coins weighing 1oz and less. The coins have officially been called the Australian Gold Kangaroo since 2008.
The Gold Kangaroo was the first gold bullion series to be approved by the Australian government, issued as legal tender. It was followed by the Gold Koala in 1988 and the Gold Kookaburra in 1990.
