The Perth Mint, Perth Reviews
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.
Location: 3min walk from Pan Pacific Perth Ambience: Mysterious Food Quality: if you are cookie monsters, the stones might be tasty! Service: excellent Money: $ - expensive stuff Remarks: famous stones are the following: 1. pink diamond - by 2020, the mines will be shut down. Means no more pink diamond 2. Gold nuggets - gold in its raw form! 3. rare stones- rainbow colour stones
Pay $19 for +/- an hour tour and worth every penny. It started with gold rush history in 1800's, it's remarkable to learn that this land had so many nuggets, some even as large as 18kgs. Short movie was also very entertaining to learn where the gold mineral actually came from. Center of attraction is one ton gold coin that currently worth $62 million. The tour ended with gold bar making process, from melted form into solid form.
For any tourist out there, this is the place to go! The tour is informative, funny and not too long. You have plenty of time to look around and even make your own souvenir coin! The big gold coin is a sight to see and the gold pour... Amazing..Really really top quality tour. I tend to find long and monotone tours sooo boring and this is neither. The guy that pours the gold and gives the tour really knows his stuff.
A most interesting place to visit, the history of which was much longer than I would have anticipated. The presentation of the story by one of the staff was knowledgeable and gave one a better understanding of the challenges that the pioneers faced.
