The Britain Royal Mint established a third branch in Perth, Australia to strengthen their connections with precious metal consumers worldwide. When the Melbourne and Sydney branches stopped operations, The Perth Mint became the oldest currently operating mint nationwide. Established in 1899, it played a major role in developing the gold industry of Western Australia.
