The Perth Mint operates one of the biggest refineries in the world, it refines more than 92% of Australia’s gold production, in addition to the gold mined from countries in the Asia-Pacific region.

The mint produces a wide variety of gold, silver, and platinum coins, plus it manufactures bullion bars for investors around the world.

Australia's famous gold bullion coins include the Gold Kangaroo (originally called the Nugget), and the Lunar Series of gold bullion coins.

Australia's silver bullion coins include the Koala, Kookaburra, Kangaroo, and the popular Silver Lunar bullion series coins.

The Perth Mint's bullion coins come in an array of different sizes, allowing them to fit in any investor's budget.

History of the Perth Mint

The statue (to the right) stands in front of the Perth Mint, it is of two prospectors who made the first major gold discovery in Australia.

The plaque under the statue states the following:

The sculpture depicts the gold strike near Coolgardie, by Prospectors William Ford and Arthur Bayley in 1892, which unleashed the Gold Rushes that secured the future of the struggling colony of Western Australia.

Established one of the State's most successful and enduring industries and led to the foundation of the Perth Mint in 1899.

The Perth Mint opened on June 20th, 1899, today it is the oldest operating Mint in Australia.

The Perth Mint was originally built as a branch of the Royal Mint in London, its main purpose was to refine gold mined in Western Australia.

The mint remained under the jurisdiction of Britain until 1970, at this time the control of the Perth Mint passed from Britain to the Government of Western Australian.

The Perth Mint is currently owned by the Gold Corporation, a private entity, wholly owned by the Government of Western Australia.

The Gold Corporation was created under an Act of the Australian Parliament, known as the "Gold Corporation Act of 1987."

In the Act, the corporation was created to take over the daily operations of the Mint, and start to produce Australian Bullion by launching Australia’s official bullion coin program.

In 1987, the Perth Mint officially launched the Australian Nugget gold bullion coin.

Note: the Australian Nugget gold bullion coin is now known as the 'Australian Kangaroo' gold bullion coin.
