About Perth Mint
The Perth Mint, one hundred percent by the State Government of Western Australia, is the official issuer of the Federal Government of Australia to gold and silver coins of gold of the program. The Mint opened in 1899 in response to the discovery of rich gold deposits in Coolgardie and Kalgoorlie. It was Australia’s third branch of the Royal Mint of Britain – the others being the Sydney Mint and the Melbourne Mint (both closed).
The Perth Mint remained under Britain’s jurisdiction until 1 July 1970, when ownership transferred to the State Government of Western Australia.
In 2003, the Perth Mint officially opened an 8,400 square meter center for manufacturing next generation of its original limestone building. Overlooking the heritage precinct Mint, these two important buildings are powerful symbols of more than years of minting excellence in Western Australia.
