About the Perth Mint

The Perth Mint first opened at the turn of the 19th century. At that time, there was a 'gold rush' in Australia, and many numbers of speculators were able to easily find gold bullion due to the country's rich reserves. The Mint was created as a way to process and refine all the gold that was being found in Australia. As Australia was still part of the the British Empire at that time, the mint focused on minting gold Sovereigns. Over a 30 year period in the early 1900s, more than 100 million Sovereigns were minted by the Perth Mint. The coins were used throughout the British Empire as currency, and particularly at trading ports. 

Mass production of gold Sovereings was halted in 1931. At this time the United Kingdom stopped using the gold standard. 

Today the refinery is responsible for producing all Australian legal tender coinage. They also produce all government backed precious metals bars and coins.
