THE ROYAL MINT IN SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA

Roger deWardt Lane adds: "In doing research on W. Stanley
Javons, several biographies noted that he was for a time an
assayer at the Mint in Sydney, Australia. This mint at the time
was a Branch Mint of the Royal Mint, London. So a search
on the Sydney mint came up with the following web site -
Royal Mint
The page has several links to other pages regarding the mint and
photographs.

[The page features some neat period photos of the mint and its
operation. Another page on the site has a modern photo of the
building and notes, interestingly: "The Mint was constructed
between 18111816 as the southern wing of the Sydney Hospital.
Known as the Rum Hospital it was built by private contractors in
exchange for an exclusive license to import rum."
