Perth Mint (The)
Enthralled by the notion of gold fever? If so, Perth Mint is the place to visit. Australia's oldest operational mint (established in 1899) offers visitors a golden journey. Travel to the early gold-craze period, and enjoy contemporary gold pouring exhibits. Witness the production of gold bullion bars and coins; gold pouring demonstrations occur on the hour. Also, enjoy the excellent selection of coins on display. The gift shop sells coins and jewelery. Call or check their website for more information.
We have been to the mint twice once in 2005 and again with the grandson in 2007 and both times we really enjoyed ourselves. we also picked up some lovely bits to take home. Lots to look at. I would recomment that everyone goes at least once while on a vist. Not that well advertised. We foundit by accident but will go again when we visit later this year Moira UK
I have been to the Perth Mint twice, and on both occasions had a lot of fun looking around.
The most recent trip, Dec 03, included a really good tour put on to show the process. As well as a unique coin engraving service, which made an ideal 50th present for my Dad!
Definately worth a visit.
