The Perth Mint was founded in 1899 as the third and final Royal Mint facility on the continent. After the Sydney Mint and Melbourne Mint closed, the Perth Mint stood as the oldest-operating mint. Today, it is owned by the state of Western Australia and operates independently of the Royal Australian Mint in Canberra.
