Shop Perth Mint Gold

The Perth Mint, Australia’s oldest operating mint, has a rich history dating back to its establishment by Sir John Forrest in 1896. Originally part of Great Britain’s Royal Mint, it transitioned to independence in 1970 and continues to operate from its original premises. Today, The Perth Mint offers comprehensive services to the Precious Metals industry, including refining, assaying, and serving as a trusted depository.

Established to meet the needs of Western Australia’s booming population following the Gold rush, The Perth Mint opened its doors in 1899. Miners flocked to exchange their Gold for currency, addressing a scarcity of money in the region. With the withdrawal of sovereigns from circulation in 1931, The Perth Mint began producing a variety of Gold and Silver coins, solidifying its reputation as a global standard for Gold purity. In 1957, it achieved a milestone with the creation of a 13 oz (400 gram) proof “plate” of .999999 fine Gold, recognized internationally for its purity.

In 1970, control of The Perth Mint shifted to the Government of Western Australia, marking a new era of independence. The establishment of the Gold Corporation by the Australian Parliament in 1987 empowered The Perth Mint to mint and market Gold, Silver, and Platinum coins, backed by government assurance of value. This move transformed these coins into legal tender and sought-after investments worldwide. Notably, the inaugural trading day saw impressive results, with 155,000 ounces of Gold sold, totaling $103 million (AUD) in profit. For over a century, The Perth Mint has continued to innovate and uphold its legacy as a leading institution in the Precious Metals industry, offering unparalleled expertise and reliability to global markets.
