Engraving a gold coin

Perth Mint

If you like shiny things...or your kids love the idea of knowing where their money is made, then The Perth Mint is for you.

The Mint is Australia’s largest fully integrated precious metals enterprise, providing premium gold, silver and platinum services to markets throughout the world.

Still operating in its original premises at the east end of the City, the Perth Mint is also a premier tourist destination.

Committed to sharing the fascinating history of Western Australian gold with the global community The Perth Mint’s ‘Gold Exhibition’ brings those stories to life and the elegantly appointed retail shop offers customers a selection of our State’s natural treasures, exquisite jewellery and giftware.

The Mint first opened its doors in 1899 in response to the discovery of rich gold deposits in Coolgardie and Kalgoorlie and was Australia’s third branch of Britain’s Royal Mint.

Tours of The Mint convey this rich history, making it a favourite with kids from all over the world.
