The Basics

A guided tour of Perth Mint takes you through exhibits featuring millions of dollars of gold and other precious metals, including the Australian Kangaroo One Tonne Gold Coin—the world’s largest gold bullion coin. You also learn the Mint’s history and watch gold being melted, poured, and formed into bars. The Mint is a stop on most Perth hop-on hop-off tours, making it easy to visit as part of a day of sightseeing.

I think the tours should be split. Tours for adults only & tours for families. Unfortunately our tour was not a great experience due to a large number of children. Was school holidays, will watch for that if I wish to take visitors in the future. Thank you

The Perth Mint: Guided Heritage Tour and Gold Pour
Very interesting and enjoyable, our tour guide knew all his facts and was fun to listen to. Thought we may have seen more of the actual building as it heritage listed would have been good to see some o the living quarters. 1 more thing I can cross off my bucket list.

The Perth Mint: Guided Heritage Tour and Gold Pour
Gold pour was interesting and informative. Shop and 1st half of tour disappointing. Shop area heating was unpleasantly warm so made shopping for jewelry very uncomfortable.
