world's largest gold bullion coin

The Perth Mint, Australia's historic precious metals Mint, has achieved a record-breaking triumph with the successful casting of the world's largest gold bullion coin, inspired by the popular Australian kangaroo gold coin series.

Made from one tonne of 99.99% pure gold, the giant coin is a magnificent Australian icon symbolising one of the Mint's most extraordinary accomplishments in its 112 year history.

It measures nearly 80 centimetres wide and over 12 centimetres thick. It has Australian legal tender status. And at one tonne (1,000kg), it's the biggest, heaviest, inherently most valuable gold bullion coin in the world.
