Some of our coins are from The Perth Mint, which started with the founding of the Perth branch of Britain’s Royal Mint in 1899. Rather than shipping gold to London and then distributing them back to Britain’s colonies, the Royal Mint built a number of branch mints throughout the Empire. The Perth Mint was one of these – built to refine gold mined in Western Australia and turn it into sovereigns.
Today, Gold Corporation operates The Perth Mint, Australia’s only London Bullion Market Association (LBMA) accredited gold refinery, which refines the most of Australia’s gold. It is also one of the highest throughput gold and silver refineries in the world.
