The Perth Mint

As one of Western Australia's leading tourist attractions, The Perth Mint offers a unique combination of activities, exhibitions and demonstrations, which enable visitors of all ages to experience the magic, allure and wonder of gold.

With the option to join a guided heritage talk, plus explore the Gold Exhibition and elegantly appointed retail shop, The Perth Mint is truly a world-class destination.

The Gold Exhibition

The Gold Exhibition uses the latest innovations in exhibition concept design and audio visual technology, to bring the history of Western Australian gold, and The Perth Mint, to life. Marvel at the largest coin ever made, weighing one tonne of pure gold, view Australia's most dazzling display of natural gold nuggets, watch molten gold being poured to form a gleaming solid gold bar, discover the value of your weight in gold on our special scales, handle more than $500,000 worth of gold bullion and much more!

Record Breaking Coin

The Guinness World Record holding centrepiece of the Gold Exhibition is the Australian Kangaroo One Tonne Gold Coin, the largest and most valuable coin in the world. Tipping the scale at a massive one tonne of 99.99% pure gold, this colossal coin measures nearly 80cm wide and is more than 12cm deep. This monumental masterpiece is valued at more than $50million.

The Perth Mint Shop

The Perth Mint Shop delivers a sumptuous shopping experience, offering a glittering choice of Australian gold, silver and platinum coins, natural gold nuggets, precious stones and an exclusive range of gifts and souvenirs. There is also a wide range of stunning jewellery including Western Australian natural treasures such as Kailis Australian Pearls, Argyle Pink Diamonds, Ellendale Yellow Diamonds, and Australian opals.

Many of the products on offer in store, together with the Mint's entire range of current coin releases, can also be purchased from our online store. The shop is open 7 days a week from 9am until 5pm, or you can make your selection on at anytime. Tax free sales are available in store only.
