The Perth Mint is the official bullion mint of Australia. It was established in 1899 and is located in Perth Austrailia. The Perth Mint produces gold and silver bars, and gold, platinum, and silver coins including, but not limited to, the gold nugget or kangaroo, the platinum koala, the silver kookaburra, the silver kangaroo, and many more gold and silver items. The Lunar New Year series of gold coins are very popular with bullion and numismatic collectors alike.
The Perth Mint should not be confused with the Royal Australian Mint. The Royal Australian Mint produces the coins of the Australian dollar that are used for circulation. As Australia is under the British Federation, The Perth Mint once produced the gold Sovereign coins. These coins were manufactured at the Sydney Mint and the Melbourne Mint as well. These two mints are now closed.
Perth Mint gold bars are produced in various sizes including 1 gram, 5 gram, 10 gram, 20 gram, 50 gram 100 gram, 1 ounce , and 10 ounce. The gold bars generally come in a sealed plastic assay card and are 99.99% pure 24 karat gold. They feature the Perth’s Mint distinctive swan logo on the front and kangaroos on the back.
