  • Thoroughly enjoyed our three hours at the Mint, especially the amount of history throughout the place. The short movie gives an impressive overview of the coin production process and being able to see the counting and packing of completed coin and being entertained by "Titan" was fabulous. The Shop was very impressive and far more reasonably priced than we had imagined it would be........would highly recommend to anyone visiting ACT.
  • Fantastic detailed displays with some being interactive. Large windows provide a clear display of the functional workshop, you can watch as they make the coins we use everyday. There's plenty of souvenirs at a wide range of prices. Limited edition coins can also be purchased for the avid collector.
  • A wonderful place to visit when you are in the capital. Next time I would love to see it on a working day. Make sure you do one of the free tours as they are very informative.
  • Interesting and entertaining for all ages! There are many displays that show you how the coins are made, and then a viewing platform where you can watch the coins being made. I really enjoyed using microscopes to examine coins, looking at the intricate details. I missed out on the guided tour. I believe there are several each day. Try and go at the right time to join the tour.
  • Unique experience to see how coins we use are minted. Reasonable range of unique coin based souvenirs available. Recommend going on weekdays so you'd actually see the live production of coins. A visit very early in the new year is also fun as you can buy a freshly minted dollar coin with the new year dated on it.
