A very interesting place to visit, hard to believe this building has so much gold on site, the gold bullion demonstration was very interesting. The staff were very funny and made the tour very worthwhile.

Took the tour which costs $25 and went with family. Good information and watching the gold pour was interesting but for two hours it got a little mundane by the end.

I enjoyed a visit here with family and friends and went on a tour. We saw a gold bar poured and saw the room where coins are struck.

There was also a 12kg gold bar on display that you could try to lift and a scale that could measure you weight in gold.

Was all interesting and worth the visit.

The Perth Mint is a worthwhile tour. Plenty to see, good displays. Had fun watching the gold melting demonstration. The presenter was excellent and and a great sense of humour. The entrance fee is a bit steep, but then so are lots of others.

If you have 2 hours to kill, this is an great tour, for kids and adults. My 11 year old son especially liked the special $2 coin.
