The Perth Mint opened in 1899 originally as a branch of the Royal Mint. It produced amongst other coins, sovereigns from 1899 to 1931 inclusive.
The Royal Australian Mint was opened by the Duke of Edinburgh in 1965 with the main original aim of producing the new decimal coinage of Australia which was introduced in 1966.
It appears that there is considerable rivalry between these two Australian mints.
Both mints compete in the tourist market, and have tours and visits available.
This page is part of the "Mints of the World" website, created to provide a list of world mints together with brief contact and other general information about them for coin collectors, dealers, numismatists.
