The Perth Mint Reviews
Guided tour of the Victorian mint, and demonstration of smelting gold and making a gold ingot by original methods, and a museum. All very interesting. The gigantic one ton gold coinis amazing! more »
Great tour with videos and demonstrations. You can even weigh yourself in gold, my wife is worth just under £4000000, I’ve just got to find a buyer! more »
If you're going to go definitely book the tour! It was great to learn about the history of gold in WA. They have a live demonstration of a gold bar being made. Also you'll see the biggest coin in the world!
A recent visit to the Mint finally ticked off something that has been on my ‘bucket list’ for decades. Well worth the price of the tour, we were guided around by Nathan, who really is one of the nicest assets to be found there and definitely worth his weight in gold! (You can actually find out your own worth in gold... and I’m not sharing mine with anyone!) Highly recommended for curious people from ‘school age’ to ‘old age’, with ramps to cater for wheelchairs, pushchairs and arthritic knees! There is a delightful café and a shop with jewellery to drool over and you can take as many photos as you like!
