The Historic Perth Mint Australia in the Evening

Australian Mint Coins

Australian Mint Coins are produced by two surviving mints in Australia, The Royal Australian Mint in Canberra, ACT and The Perth Mint Australia  in Western Australia.

goldsilvercoinsandbullion_perthmintEven though each mint produces precious metal coinage, the bulk of gold, silver and platinum coins are produced by The Perth Mint  which also mints coins for other Commonwealth island countries, such as Tuvalu.

The Royal Australian Mint in Canberra primarily mints coins for general circulation and only produces a small quantity of precious metal collector coins by comparison.

The Perth Mint Australia was established in 1899 as a branch of Britain’s Royal Mint with its main role being to produce gold sovereign coins for the British Empire from the large amount of gold being produced in the Western Australian eastern gold fields.

The Perth Mint continues to this day to produce coins and bullion from the precious metals mined in Western Australia.
