PUBLIC CONSULTATION

GoldCorp Australia has undertaken consultation among its network of Australian and international wholesale distributors. Authorised Australian distributors of Perth Mint products are consulted regularly during business meetings and participation at the Australian Numismatic Dealers’ Association Coin, Banknote and Stamp shows and Licensed Post Office Conferences held throughout Australia.  Likewise, international distributors are consulted during a schedule of individual meetings hosted during the World Money Fair held in Berlin and the American Numismatic Association’s World’s Fair of Money. 

In some instances when a major program is in concept stage Perth Mint would conduct market research through focus groups to assist us in preparing designs.

Limited consultation is conducted with external parties due to the confidentiality of coin themes and artwork, the risk of competitors viewing Perth Mint innovations and potentially releasing similar coins into the market prior to release.

Members of the public have the opportunity to contact Perth Mint to present any themes they would like to see commemorated on Australian legal tender.  These concepts are then researched and presented to GoldCorp Australia’s sales and marketing department for consideration and feedback.
