The United States Mint was created in Philadelphia in 1792. The Philadelphia Mint eventually joined with several other US Mints, each of which has, or had, their own mint mark.
Currently, there are four US Mints that produce coinage, located in Philadelphia, Denver, San Francisco and West Point. Historically, other U.S. mints included the New Orleans Mint, the Dahlonega Mint, the Charlotte Mint and the Carson City Mint (which served as a branch mint).
Examples of some products minted by the U.S. Mint include:
• Silver American Eagle
• Silver Dollars
• Silver commemoratives
The Perth Mint is the oldest operating mint in Australia and is the official bullion mint of Australia.
One of the last three colonial mints established by the Royal Mint in London, the Perth Mint served a vital need. After the discovery of gold deposits in Coolgardie, Kalgoorlie and Murchison, gold miners had few ways to exchange their gold for goods. This newly established mint solved that immediate problem.
The Perth Mint is one of several recognized mints that produce silver bullion on an annual basis.
Today, the Perth Mint has established itself as one of the premier mints in the world. It continues to produce most of the official currency for Australia, as well as gold and silver bullion, and collectible series coins.
A few of the most popular silver bullion items available from the Perth Mint include:
• Silver Kangaroos
• Silver Kookaburras
• Silver series coins, such as the Lunar Series
The expansive history of coinage in Britain can be traced back to the Celtic tribes around 80 BC. From that storied beginning, coin creation continued through Roman rule, until that period ended.
For approximately 200 years following this time, it doesn’t appear that any coins were officially minted. All that changed, however, with the emergence of the English Kingdoms in 650 AD. As many as thirty separate mints were recorded and their management varied depending on the status of warring tribes.
Finally, in 1279, all mints were rolled up under a single mint system which was housed in the Tower of London. By 1464, mints were well-established and strictly managed, with a special mint board, mint wardens and local master workers.
Significant upheaval through the centuries, including the Black Plague and the war with Scotland, the Royal Mint has weathered many storms, emerging as one of the most prestigious mints in the world today.
Collectors and investors are attracted to the intricate design of the Royal Mint’s Sovereigns, Britannia’s and Queen’s Beasts coins, available in fractional sizes and their equally impressive bars and rounds.
An example of some of the well-known silver bullion items minted by the Royal Mint include:
• Silver Britannias
• Queen’s Beasts series
• Silver bars
The Royal Canadian Mint has a long and storied history, maintaining its position as one of the world’s most prestigious mints.
For the first fifty years (beginning in 1858), Canadian coinage was produced at the Royal Mint in London. As Canada grew into its own nationhood, the need for more coinage became paramount. In 1901, a branch of the Royal Mint was built in Ottawa.
During the Great Depression, Canada negotiated its independence from the Royal Mint and, in 1931, became the Royal Canadian Mint.
The Royal Canadian Mint then began refining gold in its assay department, using electrolysis. When this process proved to be cumbersome and time consuming and, in 2006, they opened a new, state-of-the-art silver refinery.
Today, the Royal Canadian Mint has an additional branch in Winnipeg and continues to produce exceptional gold and silver coinage and bullion bars. The Gold Maple Leaf, Silver Maple Leaf and several commemorative series make this mint one of the world’s favorites.
Many of the coinage produced at the Royal Canadian Mint, including their Maple Leaf coins, are available in a variety of fractional sizes, providing value at several levels.
Some of the most popular gold bullion available from the Royal Canadian Mint include:
• Silver Maple Leafs, available in a variety of sizes
• Silver commemorative coins
• Silver series coins, like their popular Lunar Series
