The Australian Perth Mint is located in the city of Perth on the west coast of Australia. It started operating on June 20, 1899 as a branch of the English Royal Mint from London. It was founded in order to refine the large quantities of gold obtained during the gold rush. From this they then minted gold Sovereigns for the British Empire. In 1987, an Act of Parliament established the Gold Corporation, which, in partnership with the Commonwealth of Australian Treasury, became the new operator of the Perth Mint. They focused on minting and marketing gold, silver and platinum Australian coins to investors and collectors worldwide. After the renewal of the business model, The Australian Nugget gold coins, the predecessors of today's Kangaroos, entered the market. In the first day of trading alone, they achieved sales of 155,000 oz t gold coins, which is 4.8 t of pure gold. Today, the Perth Mint continues to provide precious metal refining. It produces many series of precious metal coins for investors and collectors around the world. Among them are the gold series of coins Kangaroo, Lunar III, Brumby, Emu and the silver series of coins Kookaburra, Koala, Lunar III, rectangular Dragon, Emu, Wombat, Swan, Brumby,... .
