Australia's Kangaroo bullion coins came out in 1990 and replaced the original Gold Nuggets gold bullion coins, which launched in 1986. Kangaroo species that have appeared on the coin include the red kangaroo (1990), the grey kangaroo (1991), and the whiptail wallaby (1994). Scenes from Kangaroo bullion coins have included a singular leaping kangaroo as well as the image of a mother kangaroo and joey together on the same coin. Coin sizes include a 1 oz., 1/2 oz., 1/4 oz., 1/10 oz. and 1/20 oz. bullion coin. During 1991, Australia began to release large sized bullion coins with the Red Kangaroo design - a 2 oz. version and a 10 oz. version.
