  • View the largest coin ever made — one ton of pure gold
  • See exhibits that show more than $25 million worth of gold
  • Touch a solid gold bar that is worth hundreds of thousands of dollars
  • Watch molten gold being poured
  • Find out the value of your weight in gold
Make your own way to the Perth Mint to meet your guide for the tour.
Hear about the history of the grand heritage building, which includes heavily secured vaults and the original melting house. View the largest coin ever made; have the chance to handle more than $700,000 worth of gold bullion; and watch molten gold being poured to form a solid gold bar.
See Australia's most dazzling collection of natural nuggets, including Newmont's Normandy Nugget, the second largest gold nugget in existence, which weighs 56.2 pounds (25.5 kilos).

Very informative tour. Jarrad was knowledgeable, happy to answer questions and we enjoyed his humour. We took our grandchildren who were very impressed after seeing the moulten gold poured. Good value.

The gold pour was the most interesting. Don't forget to get yourself an engraved coin to celebrate any occasion!

I've never been to a mint before and I am glad that my first visit to a mint was so informative. I loved the gold pouring demonstration. They had some fun activities like holding a gold bar, measuring your worth with the current gold price or decorating your own coin.
