  • Always enjoy visiting the Perth Mint, on this occasion we did not undertake the tour but concentrated on the goodies on display throughout the salesrooms. Both of us managed a few purchases, coins...

  • Finally took my family along to "the mint" after having it on a list of to dos for a long time. Kids excited by the gold pour, wife by the gold jewellery on offer, myself interested in the history...

  • Informative tour and amazing building. Probably would have been better if it was a smaller group (difficult to see everything) but overall, well worth the money.

  • Ideal place to purchase/store your bullion. Backed by WA Government so very safe. Quality is world leading. Also good variety of gifts
  • The Perth Mint might not sound like it should be on peoples list of places to see in Perth but you'd be wrong. Our tour guide was great in telling us the interesting history of the building, fossicking and the timeline of minting currency in Australia and worldwide. There was an impressive collection of coins, historical items and stories, followed by a gold pouring demo. This gold pouring demo alone was well worth the ticket.
  • Fantastic polite efficient and fairly price. Very greatful to be able to purchase direct. Thank you, hopefully this will be a long fruitful relationship for both parties. Highly recommend precious metal refiners and wholesalers.
  • What a great surprise and excellent value for money. Our guide was very knowledgeable and made the tour interesting. The Gold pouring was incredible, as was the $1,000,000 gold coin. The scales showing your worth in gold was a great hit too.. All staff were very helpful and the jewellery display was fantastic, especially the pink diamonds.
  • Australia and one of the world's biggest mints. Beautiful old architecture with a lot to see if you're interested in Gold, Silver and Jewellery. The tour is worth doing as you'll see how gold bars are formed as well as the biggest gold coin in the world!
