With the Australian Outback as a source of gold since 1851, the Perth Mint gold bar is minted from pure 24-karat gold. The Perth Mint gold bar from the Land Down Under is embossed with the mint’s distinctive swan logo on one side and a repeat motif of one of the nation’s symbol, the kangaroo, on the other. The Perth Mint gold bar is packaged in a green assay for security. The Perth Mint gold bar is eligible for gold IRA accounts. Important: Never cut your gold bar out of its certificate of authenticity. This can be a very costly mistake!
