Gold Bars – Perth Mint

The Perth Mint produce a selection of gold bars.

Each is 99.99 percent pure gold and features the Perth mint stamp. This is recognized throughout the world as fine gold.

All the gold produced by the Perth Mint comes from the Australian gold mines.

The bars come in 1, 2.5, 5,10,20,50 and 100 gram bars.

Each comes sealed in a protective transparent blister mounted on a green card.

Each also has the Black Swan logo. The black swan is unique. Its beak is red which makes an attractive color combination. The Black Swan prefers open waters as they need at least 20 metres to take off. However they can be found in the Swan River estuary which flows through the city of Perth. The black swan is Western Australia's bird emblem and it is said to be found as far north as the Kimberley region. The Swans are also the Perth Australian Rules football team logo and Perth is also called the Swan City.

These gold bars from the Perth mint are an excellent buy and a good long term investment and any gold collector would be pleased to have a few of these in the closet!
