The Basics

A guided tour of Perth Mint takes you through exhibits featuring millions of dollars of gold and other precious metals, including the Australian Kangaroo One Tonne Gold Coin—the world’s largest gold bullion coin. You also learn the Mint’s history and watch gold being melted, poured, and formed into bars. The Mint is a stop on most Perth hop-on hop-off tours, making it easy to visit as part of a day of sightseeing.

The gold pour was very interesting. The amount of safety protection required to pour the gold was a real insight into the procedure

The Perth Mint: Guided Heritage Tour and Gold Pour
The most memorable parts of this tour were the gold pour, trying to lift the gold bar and minting a coin to commemorate Mother’s Day, my 50th Birthday and my husband’s 54th Birthday. This tour is very rich in history. It was even made more interesting by our tour guide, Clay. A very smart and amusing young lady. I highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting the city of Perth.

The presenter John was fantastic: excellent voice projection, engaging manner and information pitched at all levels. The gold pour of course is dramatic.
