In August 2014, APMEX and the Perth Mint launched their 6th Annual Perth Mint Australian Giveaway. Recently, the winner was chosen and we’re excited to congratulate Mark S. from Texas on his selection as the winner! The contest ran through October 20 and more than 2,600 people entered, either through mail-in entry or by purchasing select Gold and Silver Perth Mint products.
Since 2008, APMEX and the Perth Mint have partnered to bring customers this once-in-a-lifetime experience. With entries growing yearly, it’s become an event that people anticipate and are excited to enter. Oftentimes, winners will chronicle their journey through photos or even a personal blog.
“We’re excited to be partnering with the Perth Mint for the sixth year in a row,” APMEX Chief Operations Officer Kenneth Lewis said. “It’s fun to see the winners’ experiences over the year when visiting the remarkable Perth Mint and beautiful Australia.”
Mark and his wife are excited to take their trip next summer, which happens to coincide with their 25th wedding anniversary. As part of his winnings, Mark will receive $1,000 (AUD) spending money, an exclusive VIP tour of the Perth Mint, roundtrip airfare, hotel accommodations for 7 days and memories to last a lifetime.
