Story

Historic Mint

The Perth Mint opened on 20 June 1899 at the height of the Western Australian gold rush. Refining the gold and striking 106 million sovereigns over the next three decades, it went on to produce vast quantities of Australian circulating coinage between 1940 and 1984. With an outstanding reputation for quality, craftsmanship, and efficiency, The Perth Mint returned to its original purpose as a maker of fine gold coins in 1986. Today, it is renowned for the design and production of exclusive Australian collector and investor pieces.

Iconic animal design

Reflecting its best-known contemporary coin series, the piece portrays a kangaroo, kookaburra, and koala artistically arranged among a representation of golden wattle, Australia’s national floral emblem. The inscription ‘1899 THE PERTH MINT 2024’ appears in a scroll at the foot of the design. Also included are a ‘P125’ mintmark and the coin’s weight, purity, and year-date.
