The Perth Mint, Perth Reviews
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.
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.
I did not realize that I would have to join a guided tour to see the mint. So I was confined to the tourist shop. Nice displays but way out of my price range. Since my last review I have been to the mint again and have gone on the tour. Thoroughly enjoyed it. I think older children would enjoy it, say about 8+ lovely to see the gold pour and the worlds largest gold coin 1000kg not something you could carry out in your pocket. Lots of amazing pure gold nuggets to see. You can also see coins being minted and get a personalized coin as well. Great fun and very interesting.
Tour guide Jarrod was excellent - funny, engaging, knowledgeable. Tour price is decent and you get to see and feel gold in all of its forms - nuggets, crystals, specks, leaf, bars, coins, jewellery. Many amazing specimens here and the gold pouring is a real treat. Amazing feel the warmth from well back and see it solidify.
A good solid afternoon outing I enjoyed it. The guided tour is really very good and the guide we had has a wicked sense of humour that probably made, in most peoples eyes, a boring topic quite exciting. I'd recommend a visit to any locals as well as Perth tourists
