Worth a visit. Great presentation of the mint, history and lesser known, interesting facts - like they print money for a vast array of countries ranging from the UK to some unusual countries. Very nicely done. Excellent selection of collector coins on show and to purchase, and of course investing in Kruger Rands. The tour was closed when we went - advise calling, because the website is/was a little misleading - but can only imagine how much cooler the visit would be including it :)

Worth a visit - but if you can't afford to break the bank I will not recommend you to go to SA mint. Even though it is a nice experience to see all types of expensive coins that a regular middle-class SA citizen can't afford. But then there are the silver coins which are a little bit more affordable. If you visit our country you are welcome to visit SA MInt you will even be able to buy some nice gold coins with your own currency.

I visited the Mint when my children were in school and again next year to buy some gifts. What a disappointment! Previously there were guided tours, a shop with excellent items and display cabinets to tempt the tourist, and a restaurant. The kids were even able to mint their own coin. This time around though, it is similar to visiting your local police station to lodge a case - table with official, wait your turn, disappear behind a screen to collect your order for you, armed security guards just in case.... What a let down. The highlight was the limited stock of coins I was able to purchase, given that most of the items on the photocopied list they produced were not available any more.

This is a great place to visit and really interesting and informative. The staff here are exceptional , the security guards at the entrance were great. the people in the Museum and shop were fantastic we dealt with Petunia who is a great ambassador for the mint. They are attentive without being in your face and very pleasant. Worth a visit

This place is amazing, give yourself a whole day to tour the mint, plenty of refreshment options available as you tour the facilities, mint your own personalised coin, see the huge minting machines in full operation and the gift shop is overflowing with souvenirs you’ll be keen to take home with you. The staff are all extremely friendly and ready to assist you at every turn. If you are anywhere near the area a real must visit destination!
