History of Perth Mint gold bars
The story of Perth Mint dates back to 1899, the year in which the Perth branch of the British Royal Mint was founded. During that period, so-called gold sovereign coins were in use and the delivery of these coins was in the hands of the British Royal Mint. In order to efficiently distribute the gold coins throughout the British colonies, the mint decided to open a number of branches where gold mining sites were located. The Perth Mint in Western Australia was one of these locations and from then on the mined gold was used to produce sovereigns coins. From 1931, these coins were withdrawn from circulation and Perth Mint started to focus on producing other types of coins. In 1970, the British-owned company was transferred to the government in Western Australia, which still owns the Perth Mint today.
