About the Perth Mint
The Perth Mint was founded in 1899 after gold was discovered in local Australian deposits. The newly-established mint struck gold and silver sovereigns until Great Britain abandoned the gold standard in 1931.
The mint remained under British ownership until July of 1970, when it ceded to the state government of Western Australia. Today, the Perth Mint produces nearly all of the nation’s legal tender bullion coins in its state-of-the-art manufacturing facility.

" This was my first Perth Kilo and it is impressive. Everyone who has seen and held it understand it has value as both for the silver and the art. I'm going back and getting a Kook and a Koala as well in the kilo size. I'm hooked. "

" This coin is really really detailed. The thickness is hard to believe. You have to hold one in your hand and see how heavy it is. Highly recommended! Great job, Perth Mint!"

" This coin is hardly a coin, and more like a manhole cover. (Ok, maybe not quite.) But it is large, quite think, and 32 ounces means it is heavy. It really is a work of art and I suggest anyone buying a quantity of silver try this simply for the novelty of it. This is my 10th transaction with Provident since 2012, and it was flawless. Thank you!"

" With the Lunar coins, they just keep getting better & better. The Year of the Goat coin is nothing less than beautiful. There's nothing like holding a kilo in your hands & the photos online just simply don't highlight all the stunning details... I highly recommend this coin to any bullion collector."
