Swan Coin Series
The Swan is an iconic species that is synonymous with The Perth Mint itself as it appears in the mint’s logo. The Perth Mint’s operations are situated in the heart of Perth, the capital and largest city of Western Australia. Founded in 1829 on the shores of the Swan River, the original colony in the territory was in fact called Swan River Colony, the location of which is now Perth.
The Perth Mint History
Perth grew rapidly in the late 19th century thanks to its rich deposits of natural resources such as oil, gas and perhaps most of all, Gold. From its origins, The Perth Mint
is in many ways personified by the swan, a regal waterfowl that appears on the flag of Western Australia and symbolizes timelessness, elegance and beauty, much like the standard of coins produced by The Perth Mint itself. The Perth Mint has a phenomenal reputation for producing high quality Silver bullion
that also provides collectors the ability to collect an entire series that showcases different designs.
