  • The paid guided tour is in English, but there is no problem because it lends a Japanese guide system. You can also watch a demonstration of making a gold bar or actually try to hold a bar. You can also create commemorative coins. In addition to gold, you can buy jewelry such as pink diamonds in the shop. There are souvenirs, so it is also ants to use only the shop.

  • If you're going to go definitely book the tour! It was great to learn about the history of gold in WA. They have a live demonstration of a gold bar being made. Also you'll see the biggest coin in the world!
  • A recent visit to the Mint finally ticked off something that has been on my ‘bucket list’ for decades. Well worth the price of the tour, we were guided around by Nathan, who really is one of the nicest assets to be found there and definitely worth his weight in gold! (You can actually find out your own worth in gold... and I’m not sharing mine with anyone!) Highly recommended for curious people from ‘school age’ to ‘old age’, with ramps to cater for wheelchairs, pushchairs and arthritic knees! There is a delightful café and a shop with jewellery to drool over and you can take as many photos as you like!
