The Perth Mint has appointed Coins N Things Inc. as the exclusive distributor for its Kangaroo Minted Gold Bars in North America.
Based in Bridgewater, Mass., the wholesale company has been in business for 37 years and records more than $1.5 billion in sales annually.
Already, CNT is a major distributor of the mint’s Australian Nugget gold bullion coin series.
Available in 5-gram, 10-gram, 20-gram, 1-ounce and 10-ounce sizes, the bars are made of 99.99 percent pure gold. Each bar bears the mint’s swan logo on the front. The back of each is decorated with kangaroo motifs, symbolic of the Australian outback where gold has been mined in commercial quantities since 1851.
Each bar is individually sealed in a tamper-proof presentation card featuring a unique serial number and the signature of the mint’s chief assayer.
“Mark and his organization have proved to be extremely effective distributors of our gold bullion coins in the highly-competitive North American market,” said Ron Currie, Perth Mint sales and marketing director. “I look forward to them achieving similar success with our Kangaroo Minted Gold Bars.”
