I learned a lot on this tour of the Perth mint about gold. The gold pouring demonstration was particularly interesting.

The Mint is a very visit for a couple of hours. The museum's interactive exhibits and videos are very well done and professional. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and engaging.The gold pouring exhibit is interesting. At the end of the tour you do get the opportunity to create your own gold coin for an additional fee. We created a custom design, and both Glen and Bryn were really helpful and easy to deal with!

The one negative is the price of admission - about $15/per person too expensive. It would be nice if the musueam gave you a quantity of gold = to your admission price.

Handy to the city ok for a visit for families or individuals. Was very educational. You only need a hours or so to see through the museum.

Wow all that gold! And those beautiful diamonds and other gems. We visited The Perth Mint and we were impressed with the tour. Must admit watching the gold being poured was my highlight. Getting coins engraved to remind us of our visit was a novelty but worth it.

if you are a coin collector or just interested in the history of money then this is a must visit attraction. Overlooking the machines is an experience along with the gold exhibition and watching the melting / pouring of a bullion. All round a worthwhile way of spending a couple of hours, not to mention the fantastic old building housing the mint!
