Few remarks:

Perth mint is a private mint, mostly engaged in producing hedious pesudo coins.

Canadian mint doesn't ship coins outside Canada.

US mint ships its numismatic products outside US AFAIK but shipping charges are very high. You can buy from reputable dealers for a much better price instead.

Few other mints / central banks do sell their numismatic products outisde their own country. Luxembourg, Slovakia, Austria, Cyprus, UK are good examples. But again, they tend to ask unrealistic shipping charges so it's more economical to  buy from a dealer where you can get a particular item for less than the actual issue price. (Many of the above mints have different prices for bulk orders by dealers and small orders by collectors)..

Might be possible...I didn't check exclusively for India but they have mentioned international postage somewhere on their site so I thought they will ship to India too..

It IS the case, from someone who buys from the US mint directly..or rather indirectly since the last 2 years

Here is the general case:


Indeed, it is useful to check shipping conditions carefully.
