The Perth Mint has been serving the people of Australia since 1899 when it was founded as another location of the Royal Mint. They later became the mint for Australia and currently mint the money for Australia and collectors coins and bullion. Having a long history of minting legal tender has given the mint the strong foundation for making coins. The Perth Mint has taken this foundation and built on it to become a trend-setter among mints. Some of the coins that use color and gilding have become some of the mints top selling coins.
