The Perth Mint

Inside the historic premises opened in 1899, your guide will introduce their world-class exhibition and its mesmerising journey of gold discovery. You’ll encounter extraordinary gold nuggets, hold a large bullion bar and see some of the most famous coins and medals ever made in Australia. You’ll be greeted by their One Tonne Gold Coin, an enormous version of their admired Australian Kangaroo-series of 99.99 per cent pure gold investment coins. With an intrinsic value of more than AUD75 million, the colossal piece won the title of the ‘largest coin’ by Guinness World Records. Unique examples of Western Australia’s gold and silver heritage, ‘King Henry’ and ‘The Karratha Queen’ are two of the largest precious metal specimens in the world. Next, your guide will demonstrate a traditional gold pour in the old melting house. It’s an awe-inspiring spectacle as molten gold is transformed into a gleaming solid gold bar before your eyes. As a token of your visit, medallions are available which can be engraved in a matter of minutes with your personal message. Located in heritage rooms once used to receive gold deposits from prospectors, the shop showcases many of Australia’s most precious natural treasures. Their new Pink Diamond Room is dedicated to spectacular pieces featuring some of the rarest and most sought-after diamonds that until recently, were exclusively mined in Western Australia’s Kimberley region.
