The Perth Mint

Experience the magic, allure and wonder of gold.

Originally established as a branch of Britain’s Royal Mint in 1899, The Perth Mint is Australia’s oldest operating mint. As one of Perth’s premier tourist destinations and historic landmarks, The Perth Mint offers visitors the opportunity to experience the magic, allure and wonder of gold.

Within its world-class exhibition halls, the history of Western Australian gold, and The Perth Mint, come to life. Discover remarkable stories through an array of interactive displays, historic images and artefacts, which form the backdrop to stunning pure gold exhibits.

Be captivated by a traditional gold pour in the Mint’s original 1899 melting house, and marvel at the Guinness World Record holding largest coin weighing one tonne of pure gold – valued at more than $90 million. Handle more than $500,000 worth of gold bullion and marvel at precious metal coins being minted before your eyes. Design your own medallion and discover the value of your weight in gold, plus you can purchase unique Western Australian treasures including exquisite Argyle Pink Diamonds and South Sea Pearls. (Tax free sales available)


Enjoy a guided heritage walk, entrance to our Gold Exhibition and a gold pouring demonstration. Regular tours are run daily.
