  • Ideal place to purchase/store your bullion. Backed by WA Government so very safe. Quality is world leading. Also good variety of gifts
  • The Perth Mint might not sound like it should be on peoples list of places to see in Perth but you'd be wrong. Our tour guide was great in telling us the interesting history of the building, fossicking and the timeline of minting currency in Australia and worldwide. There was an impressive collection of coins, historical items and stories, followed by a gold pouring demo. This gold pouring demo alone was well worth the ticket.
