Great place to visit if going to Perth. The guided tour is very good. You get to see the largest (1 Tonne) and most valuable gold coin in the world rotating on a solid plinth. The mint also houses the second largest gold nugget (25 Kg) currently in existence. The "Gold Pour" is very entertaining; from a safe distance you watch a guy pour 99.99% molten gold from the furnace to form a 6Kg gold bar.
This place is great. Well relatively speaking. This place has a great place where you can actually see them pouring gold and remedying it again which is fascinating. This is where there is a huge gold coin that is to scale. The place has character and it is really good
If you like gold then this is a good visit. There's a reasonable amount about the history of the Perth Mint (which is a fine old building) and the Western Australia gold rush. There are plenty of exanples of LARGE nuggets (really large) and the highlight is the gold pour which was made very entertaining and a lot of fun.
Highly recommended if you have any interest in the history of gold in WA. Even better, you have the opportunity to see the largest gold coin in the world (worth nearly $60 million today.) We had Rupert as our tour guide and he was excellent. There is also a gold pouring demonstration which is very interesting.
One of the best places to visit in Perth. Very informative tour about the history of gold. Interesting guided tour where you can see the biggest coin in the world weighing 1 ton and worth around $60 millions. You will also have the chance to see several “gold nuggets”. We enjoyed the demonstration on how to make the gold bars. You also will be able to try carry 15kg real gold bar.
