When the Gold Australian Kangaroos debuted in 1986 as the Gold Australian Nugget, the series featured 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz gold. While other weights have been added and subtracted in the series, these four have remained a constant for investors who follow this collection closely.

In 1990, the Perth Mint transitioned the Gold Australian Nugget from its gold nugget reverse designs to become the Gold Australian Kangaroo Series. The new coins featured changing reverse images of the kangaroo, a native marsupial, rather than using various images of gold nuggets. The evolution of the series brought with it new additions in terms of weights.
Starting in 1990, a 1/20 oz gold coin was added that made the 1/10 oz coin the second-smallest coin in the series. 1991 brought with it the addition of 1 Kilo, 10 oz, and 2 oz gold coins to the series. These various different weights were continuously offered each year by the Perth Mint until 2009. That was the last year in which the 10 oz and 2 oz gold coins were available. The 1/20 oz gold coin was offered two more times in 2010 and 2011, before it too was suspended.
Queen Elizabeth II is featured in the obverse design element of 2021 1/10 oz Gold Australian Kangaroos. This bust of the Queen was designed in 2015 by Jody Clark and shows the Queen in right-profile relief at the age of 89. This is the sixth-generation effigy of England’s longest-reigning monarch to feature on national coinage in Australia.
A red kangaroo is depicted on the reverse side of 2021 Gold Australian Kangaroos. Natasha Muhl created the artwork found here for this release and showcases a red kangaroo crouching down on its hind legs. The animal is found along with the native Waratah and Kangaroo Paw plants.
These 2021 1/10 oz Gold Australian Kangaroos are available to you with individual acrylic capsules and come from the Perth Mint in Brilliant Uncirculated condition.
