  • Great tour, well worth doing. Very informative for all ages. Had some very interesting displays, especially the 1 ton gold coin.

  • The Perth Mint might not sound like it should be on peoples list of places to see in Perth but you'd be wrong. Our tour guide was great in telling us the interesting history of the building, fossicking and the timeline of minting currency in Australia and worldwide. There was an impressive collection of coins, historical items and stories, followed by a gold pouring demo. This gold pouring demo alone was well worth the ticket.
  • It's a nice one hour tour. Easy to get there in Hay Street in the CBD. You get to see some incredible specimens and coins, and know a brief history about the place. An actual demonstration of melting/producing a gold bar like it happened back in the old days. Recommended and won't take much of your time ...
