The 35th anniversary release portray a representation of Stuart Devlin’s red kangaroo surrounded by symbolic rays of sun. As well as the number 35, the design includes a small representation of the world-famous Welcome Stranger gold nugget. In deference to the series’ original name, each coin’s reverse incorporates the inscription AUSTRALIAN NUGGET 1986 – 2021 and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.

The Raphael Maklouf portrait, which was shown on the 1986-dated Australian Nugget gold coin, appears above Jody Clark’s contemporary depiction of the queen.
