Queensland Mint is proud to present the 1987 1/2 oz Australian Nugget Gold Coin from The Perth Mint.
The Gold Nugget was introduced in 1986 by the Gold Corporation, a company wholly owned by the government of Western Australia. Gold Kangaroos have been produced by Perth Mint since 1989 and are one of the purest gold coins in the world at .9999 purity. The Nugget is minted in denominations of 1/20 oz, 1/10 oz, 1/4 oz, 1/2 oz, 1 oz, 2 oz, 10 oz and 1 kg.
The motif of the Nugget varies from year to year, giving the coins a slightly higher numismatic value over their bullion value.

- Protective acrylic capsule
- Mintage 105,530
The reverse of the coin features a representation of the legendary 'Hand of Faith' Nugget surrounded by stylised rays of sunlight. Bordered by the inscription "THE AUSTRALIAN NUGGET", the year-made, the weight and its purity.
The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination.
