Perth Mint gold bars
Perth Mint Gold Bars Overview
The Perth Mint in Western Australia was set up in 1899 as a branch of the British Royal Mint, primarily to refine gold whihc had been discovered in the area, and coin it into gold sovereigns. It is the oldest existing Australian mint, and has always specialised in precious metals, particularly gold. The Perth Mint’s coins and bars are valued for their high quality finish and purity. The legal tender status of the gold Perth Mint coins means their precious metal content is guaranteed by the Commonwealth Government of Australia. The AGR Matthey stamped bars are primarily manufactured for industrial and wholesale purposes, and are therefore not distributed or retailed like coins. Stamped Perth Mint bars are generally only available in Australia. Representing an exceptionally convenient way to store physical gold all minted bars are priced at a low premium over gold content price.
The Perth Mint manufactures a range of gold and silver bullion coins and bars to suit all types of investors, from the 1,000oz (31kg) silver bar to the 1/20oz (1.5g) gold coin. The 1kg gold, 400oz gold and 1,000oz silver bars are stamped with the AGR Matthey or Perth Mint mark and include a serial number, giving additional security. These bars are internationally recognised and tradable without the need for assay.
