One of Western Australia’s leading tourist attractions, The Perth Mint offers a unique combination of activities, exhibitions and demonstrations, enabling visitors to experience the astonishing allure of gold.
Guided Heritage Walk
Make the most of your visit to the historic Perth Mint by joining one of our regular hourly guided talks. The grand heritage building, the heavily secured vault and the original melting house provide the cues for many extraordinary stories about Western Australia’s golden history and the Mint’s prolific output of priceless gold bars and coins. Valued at more than $50 million, the biggest, heaviest, and most valuable gold bullion coin in the world is also now on display at The Perth Mint.
Watch A Gold Pour
Your visit includes the amazing spectacle of a traditional gold pour, during which pure gold is heated to molten temperatures and transformed into a solid gold bar. The nineteenth century brick walls of the melting house are literally embedded with gold dust, accumulated over many decades of continuous refining.
Visit us today and discover the tremendous impact that the discovery of gold has had on shaping Western Australia when you take part in one of our hourly tours, which includes entry to the dazzling Gold Exhibition. See the Guinness World Record holding Australian Kangaroo One Tonne Gold Coin, witness the amazing spectacle of a traditional gold pour, find out what your weight is worth in gold, and engrave your very own medallion!
You can also discover an array of treasures in our elegantly appointed retail shop which offers a glittering choice of Australian gold, silver and platinum coins, natural gold nuggets, exquisite jewellery, precious stones and an exclusive range of gifts and souvenirs.
