Overview

Learn all about gold and the Australian gold rush during a one-hour tour of the Perth Mint. One of Western Australia’s oldest heritage sites, the Perth Mint features multimedia presentations, historic images and artifacts, and a dazzling array of pure gold that includes natural gold nuggets and a solid gold bar.

What to Expect

Make your own way to the Perth Mint to meet your guide for the tour.

Hear about the history of the grand heritage building, which includes heavily secured vaults and the original melting house. View the largest coin ever made; have the chance to handle more than $700,000 worth of gold bullion; and watch molten gold being poured to form a solid gold bar.

See Australia's most dazzling collection of natural nuggets, including Newmont's Normandy Nugget, the second largest gold nugget in existence, which weighs 56.2 pounds (25.5 kilos). You'll also learn about the lives of early gold prospectors who often spent years in the harsh conditions of the Australian outback in search of gold.
