  • They have tours in the morning to show you how gold bars are made. Never knew there was so much gold in Australia! Also they can customize the medallions for you!

  • To be blunt, there just isn't much to see here. You get to see a room where they are doing some work with the coins, a few bits of gold (and I big coin) and of course the fantastic gold pour. But that's about it. Fortunately, the tour guide was fantastic and kept everyone engaged, despite the lack of actual content to show. The history lesson was greatly appreciated! Is it worth $20? Maybe.
  • Ideal place to purchase/store your bullion. Backed by WA Government so very safe. Quality is world leading. Also good variety of gifts
