Who is the Perth Mint?

The Perth Mint was first opened in June 1899 by the Royal Mint of London. At the time, Australia was still under British colonial rule. The Perth Mint was not the first branch to open under British control; however, it is the only one out of three to remain open and running today and has proudly claimed the status of oldest operating mint facility in the entire South Pacific! Ownership of the mint was not transferred to the Government of Western Australia until July 1970.

As previously mentioned, the Perth Mint was not the first mint to open in Australia under British rule. In fact, it was the third. The first to open was the Sydney Mint in 1855 and was also the first to close in 1926. The second facility to open was the Melbourne Mint in 1872, which did not close its doors until 1967.

From 1899-1926 the three mints combined their efforts to refine extensive amounts of gold and silver ascertained from as far back as the mid-nineteenth century. In fact, the Perth Mint alone produced well over a hundred million coins from 1901-1936 to be used as legal tender throughout the British Empire.
