From Rome mint to Perth mint!


Recommended Posts

Visited the Perth mint today after been wanting to visit for years despite living in the same city, and brought along with me my new pocket piece, a Trajan sestertius minted in Rome.

Never seen so much gold nuggets in the same place along with bars of pure gold and silver!


What did I buy? well, this overpriced half a gram gold kangaroo that I could get under $100.

Very cool, but what I really would love to see is a sestertius together with a quokka!

Took this pic back in early 2020, before I started collecting ancients, so no sestertius in this image. I’d love to pet these chunky marsupials but too bad you can’t touch them!
