The Perth Mint is Australia's leading precious metal refiner. Backed by the Western Australian Government, The Perth Mint has produced the official bullion coin program since 1987.
The Perth Mint also produces a large range of high quality gold and silver bars. All Perth Mint gold and silver products are refined to 99.99% purity. Coins are a popular choice of bullion given their legal tender status (Government backing of the coin and its metal content), often smaller in size (making for easier disposal in the event of large price increases), international recognition (no fuss tradability overseas) and portability.
Another common advantage is mintage limits on many government minted coins meaning a "collectible" premium can often be realised. Refer to the ATO or your advisor for more information. Coins can make for the perfect gift as you can match the year or Lunar Year to the recipient to celebrate an event.
