We found the Perth Mint very interesting and educational. The shop is great for gifts and souvenirs and there is a little coffee shop there as well. The tour was also well worth the price and very well done to present the history and process...More

This is a beautiful old building made of contrasting sandstone tones. The guide was well informed and humorous with plenty of stories about WA versus the rest of Australia. For me the most enjoyable part was the interactive stories of the goldfields, the people and...More

The highlights of the trip include seeing the world's biggest gold coin weighing 1 tonne and of course thesis minute demonstration of how a gold coin is minted from the molten ore. An informative hour for those crazy about the yellow metal like my wife...More

A really good rainy day activity and quite a good tour. The only complaint is how many people were on the tour - it was very crowded and often hard to hear the guide speak, as we went through many rooms and areas that were...More

Fascinating tour in which a genuine gold bar is made before your very eyes. The tour guide knew what he was talking about & he made the tour very interesting as well as educational. You could also purchase gold nuggets in varying weights & sizes....More

The narrated tour was interesting. Take the time to watch them pour a brick of gold and learn about the process. The world's largest gold coin is on display as are several very large gold nuggets. There's a posh (somewhat overpriced) jewelry store there, too.

Was very interesting, from watching the gold bullion getting made to trying to lift a 12kg gold bar. A Definate must if you're in Perth.

Hi, For a single traveller in their 30s travelling by themself, is it worth going to visit Perth Mint. And is there much to do and see there and be interested about? Particularly if you don't have large amounts of money to spend on items there?

Sorry you've probably already visited Perth. I don't think it cost much to go inside, but if your tight on cash id skip it. It's a very short tour maybe 30mins the main interest for me was them actually melting the gold bar... More
Hi Perth mint, I notice in 'the blurb' on your website it mentions sovereign watches for sale but I couldn't find them on your shop tab? Do you still have them? Am I looking in the wrong spot? If not, can you advise a good gift for an 80 yr old man! :)
