The Perth Mint is part of Gold Corporation an autonomous institution wholly owned by the Government of Western Australia. The Perth Mint is located in the centre of the city of Perth, the capital of Western Australia.

The Perth Mint has manufactured gold coins since 1899. The Perth Branch manufactured its first gold coin, a British sovereign, in 1899. Over the next 32 years until 1931, it issued more than 106 million sovereigns and nearly 735,000 half sovereigns, all with the distinctive “P” mintmark. The success story continued with minting decimal coins until 1984. In 1987 the Perth Mint was culminated into Gold Corporation and then expanded its range of precious metal products. In addition to gold bullion coins the Perth Mint also mints gold and platinum bullion coins (1988) adding palladium in 1995.
