Founded in 1899, the Perth Mint was initially the third and final facility in the Royal Mint system on the continent. Following Australian federation, the Sydney Mint and Melbourne Mint eventually moved toward closure, leaving the Perth Mint as the oldest in the country. The Royal Australian Mint is now the sovereign mint of the nation, with the Perth Mint owned by the state of Western Australia.
