We had a good time, the tour guide was very informative. The gold pouring was good, the guide for this part of the tour made the experience fun. The display was great, a good place to visit especially on a rainy day

Architectural details aplenty. Fabulous old building and gardens. Gift shop is a must to visit and we picked up some travel treasures to take home. Tours are every hour which we sadly missed. Next time for sure.

Really enjoyed the tour of Perth mint. Staff made tour interesting and informative. Loved the Gold Pour, the largest gold coin, ability to touch and pick up the 10kg gold ingot and that you could get a personalised stamped coin.More

If you are interested in the inner workings of a Mint. There is an entry cost. For cheaper things to do, look up Perth Walking Tour or visit Claisebrooke Cove
