About the Perth Mint in Australia

The Perth MInt was founded in 1899. At that time Australia was a territory of the United Kingdom, and both mining and panning for gold had become hugely popular, largely due to the country's abundance of precious metals. Prior to the opening of the Perth Mint, the territory of Australia would send any metal back to the Royal Mint in the UK to be refined. However, this was inefficient. The territory of Australia decided to set up its own refinery so that any precious metals that were mined could be refined locally. 

The Perth Mint initially minted gold sovereigns. Gold sovereigns were recognised throguhout many of the ports associated with the British Empire, as they were made of gold. Both Canada and India also manufactured gold Sovereign coins in the latter half of the 1800s and the beginning of the 1900s. 

Today the Perth Mint is one of the most prominent precious metals refineries worldwide. Investors worldwide buy gold and silver coin from the Perth Mint, and their products also have a following by numismatic collectors. Perth Mint Silver Lunar Series, Kookaburra and Koala coins are all very popular, and many investors like to purchase a new position in these annually. This is due to the fact that each of these coins has a new design each year. The silver Kangaroo coin is also popular with investors, and is also available in monster boxes. For investors who are unsure of which silver coins to buy, Perth Mint silver bullion is an excellent option.
