RE­GAL TEN­DER

The West Australian - - INSIDE COVER -

Stick­ing with the royal wed­ding for a mo­ment, Perth Mint has re­leased a pair of lim­ited-edi­tion com­mem­o­ra­tive coins for the big day.

One is a 1/4oz 99.99% pure gold coin, which re­tails for $799, and the other is a 99.99% pure silver 1oz coin that’s a bar­gain at just $99.

Both fea­ture Perth Mint’s “P” mint mark on the re­verse de­sign, and are is­sued as le­gal ten­der, with the Ian Rank-Broadley ef­figy of Harry’s grandma, Queen El­iz­a­beth II, on the ob­verse.

Perth Mint group man­ager of minted prod­ucts Neil Vance said the mint had cel­e­brated sig­nif­i­cant mile­stones of the Bri­tish monar­chy for years.

“It is an hon­our to now con­vey Aus­tralia’s heart­felt congratulations to (Prince Harry and Meghan Markle) and warm wishes for their fu­ture hap­pi­ness with these of­fi­cial coins ap­proved by Buck­ing­ham Palace,” he said.
