History

The Perth Branch of the Royal Mint (London) was established by Act of Parliament in Western Australia. It was the third mint branch to be opened in Australia. Its initial purpose was to refine the gold produced in Western Australia and to produce much needed coinage for the State in the form of sovereigns and half sovereigns. Coinage operations ceased when Australia came off the gold standard in 1931 and all subsequent output was in the form of gold bars. Apart from some shillings produced in 1922 and occasional medals, major coin production did not resume until 1940 when bronze circulating coins were made in 1968.
