We’ve been shining for WA for 118 years

In one of the most isolated cities in the world, we’ve pursued perfection and helped Western Australia shine on the world stage for more than a century. As we celebrate our 118th birthday this year, we reflect on some of the moments that made us shine the brightest. Since the gold rushes of the 1880s to today’s ever-shifting precious metals industry, this excellence has created a global reputation – to shine, always. 

  • We’ve crafted a world record.

    In 2012, we created a mighty one tonne gold kangaroo coin – the world’s largest gold coin. This was the result of hundreds of hours of dedication from a team of experts.
