The Perth Mint is another of the world’s best and most trusted precious metal refineries. It is the oldest refinery in Western Australia; its origins date back to 1899, during the Western Australia gold rush. In the mint’s early years, it refined and minted gold into gold coins for the diggers who deposited their raw gold at The Perth Mint. For over 70 years, until 1970, the Perth Mint was a branch of Britain's Royal Mint, until the Western Australian Government took ownership of it. Today, The Perth Mint continues to refine gold and is responsible for manufacturing and marketing Australia's legal tender precious metal coins. The Perth Mint is also recognized for refining stunning gold bars, which were first introduced by the mint in January 2010. The Perth Mint 20 gram gold bar is part of that collection.
