There are few bullion coins than can boast a weight of 1000 grams, but the Australian nugget produced by the Perth Mint for the 24th consecutive year can claim to be a genuine heavy weight in the bullion market. Featuring the classic Red Kangaroo design by Queen Elizabeth II goldsmith, the iconic coin is a favourite amongst wealthy investors and passionate coin collectors. But with a limited mintage, these rare coins are difficult to find so order now whilst stocks last.
The Perth Mint issues the world's largest range of pure gold and have a global reputation for producing high quality bullion coins. The 2015 1kg Australian Kangaroo is a good example of the precision engineering the Perth refinery is capable of and with a purity of 24-karat gold is a valuable asset to have in your investment armoury. These special coins have a limited mintage and as such are collector's items which makes them appealing to both collectors and investors. Owners of the 2015 edition can therefore look forward to a respectable return on investment when the time comes to sell. And with a high liquidity value, you will not be short of bidders.
The first Australian “Nuggets" were first released in 1986, and the 1KG coin came five years later in 1991. The earlier coins featured the image of a nugget on the reverse side which gave them their original name. This is why you still see the coins labelled as Nugget/Kangaroo today. The decision to replace the image of the nugget with the Kangaroo was made in 1990 and the coins adopted the marsupial's name, albeit only among traders and reporters, not officially. In 2008, the nickname of the bullion was officially included in the title of the coin. What sets the 1KG apart from smaller denominations however is that they retain the original design created by Stuart Devlin, an Australian born goldsmith who later became jeweller to the Queen. All denominations 1oz and below feature a unique design each year.
The Perth Mint has a proud heritage of producing some of the finest bullion coins on the market and take special measures to protect their customers from receiving counterfeit goods. The 1kg coin would be virtually impossible to replicate even if the forger did think he would find a valid buyer without it passing undetected by an experienced eye for bullion. The advanced minting techniques in the industry today are far too refined for forgers to master copy and if CoinInvest GmbH were invited to stock counterfeit products, the frauds would not get past the experienced eyes of our experts. Investors in the 1kg Australian Nugget/Kangaroo can therefore be certain the product they receive is 100% genuine.
