A very informative visit with history of the Mint, of gold mining in WA and worldwide in their video. Extensive gift shop, many exhibits, interactive aspects to engage children (quiz, weigh-in, gold pouring). Jarryd (tour guide) and Ruben (gold pourer) were engaging, informative and funny.

Was a great way to stay dry for a little while and learn something of the Perth Mint and the beginning of the gold rush in WA :)

This tour was a delightful surprise. Rupert, our tour guide, was brilliant at conveying the history and drama of the golden nugget. The one tonne coin is mind blowing. Great visit.

We were astounded at the 1-tonne gold coin. We loved the interactive displays. Tourguide Rupert made this a LOT OF FUN. Hopefully a Hollywood talent scout will discover him.
