A great place to visit to kill an hour or so. Interesting talk on the history of gold in WA and a good demo of gold smelting inside.

Worth a visit.

Thank Piran

Visited the Mint for the third time and was excited to discover an addition to the displays. A mint employee - part actor, part story teller, part historian - regaled us with facts woven in to a mini play about the life and hardships of a gold prospector in the 'Gold Fever' days. He was brilliant - informative, funny and totally in character. The gold pour exhibition is always fascinating and the displays of gold in its natural form and also made into exquisite jewellery is well worth the visit. There is also a shop where you can purchase collectors items such as coins. Excellent!

Perth Mint is a walk back in history. I went here about 8 years and things havent changed, with the exception has a great little cafe inside that has fantastic inexpensive snacks and cuppas. The tour is short and not too much to stand and watch. its a good amount of time and interesting. Like coming here
