With a rich history as part of the British Empire, and Commonwealth, Australia originally relied on the currency of other countries. Not until 1825 was British currency made the official currency of Australia, with a large amount of coins being imported between 1824 – 25.

When a gold rush began in Victoria around 1851, many unofficial gold coins were used. The gold rush helped fund an influx of immigration and set the foundation for Australia as a major country. The country had three mints by 1899; Sydney Mint, Melbourne Mint, and the currently still operating Perth Mint. Originally, they were branches of Britain’s Royal Mint, but in 1970 ownership was transferred to the Government of Western Australia.

The Perth Mint is still one of the world’s largest exporters, distributing gold, silver and platinum to investors in more than 100 countries.
