The Perth Mint, Perth Reviews
One of the smaller historical mints that is still actively producing commemorative coins. The staff are friendly, helpful and full of knowledge. You can ask them almost anything and they will be happy to try to help. The site offers daily tours around the mint (approx. Every hour) and the price is reasonable. The tour explains not only the history of the site but also covers a brief history of the gold rush in Western Australia along with some replica and real gold nuggets. The Perth Mint claims to be home to the worlds largest gold coin ever produced by weight (1 tonne). Site tours include an informative demonstration on how the mint used to melt down gold into liquid form and produce the gold bullion bars we know today. I highly recommend signing up to the tour as there are plenty of areas you will be able to access as part of the tour.
Great, must-see attraction for anybody visiting Perth, and wanting to understand why the city is even here in the first place! Make sure to see the gold pouring demonstration and try to lift the 6kg gold bar. If you've got a fat wallet then there's some lovely jewellery and mementos for sale in the shop.
Good for a visit and plenty of interesting info to learn. Lots of coins. Lots of gold, including a giant one tonne gold coin. See gold heated in a furnace then poured into a mould. Worth booking a tour and the guide provides plenty of interesting facts in an entertaining fashion.
Stopped in while exploring Perth. Was absolutely brilliant. Nominal fee for the tour, and very well worth it and would classify the mint as a 'must see'. Highly recommended.
Fun and interesting experience. Good for young and old. You aren't able to enter without being part of a group, which leave on the half hour i.e. 10.30am, 11.30am. Involves a presentation and good pouring example. Easy to spend 30-60 minutes here.
