The coins of Australia are currently minted at two mints, the Perth Mint and the Royal Australian Mint. The Perth Mint has the responsibility for minting bullion coins and some commemorative coins, but does not mint circulation coins. The Royal Australian Mint mints both circulation coins for Australia and some commemorative coins. The focus here is on the Australian coins from the Perth Mint. Yes, other coins are being struck at the Perth Mint, including many commemorative coins for Tuvalu, but that is the subject for a future article.
