Description

Celebrate The Perth Mint’s 125th anniversary with a visit to its historic premises in 2024. Inside the historic walls, opened in 1899, your guide will introduce The Perth Mint's world-class exhibition and its mesmerising journey of gold discovery. You’ll encounter extraordinary gold nuggets, touch a large bullion bar, and see some of the most famous coins and medals ever made in Australia. Pride of place on entry goes to the One Tonne Gold Coin, an enormous version of the Mint’s sought after Australian Kangaroo series of 99.99% pure gold investment coins. With an intrinsic value of more than $90 million, the colossal piece was awarded the title ‘largest gold coin’ by Guinness World Records in 2012. Unique examples of Western Australia’s gold and silver heritage, ‘King Henry’ and ‘The Karratha Queen’ are two of the largest and most valuable precious metal specimens in the world. Having enjoyed these dazzling showpieces, your guide will perform a live gold pour in the original melting house. It’s an awe-inspiring spectacle as molten gold is transformed into a gleaming solid gold bar right before your eyes. As a token of your visit, medallions are available which can be engraved in a matter of minutes with your personal message. Explore The Perth Mint Shop before departing. Located in heritage rooms once used to receive gold deposits from prospectors, today’s polished interior offers bullion bars and coins, as well as many of Australia’s most precious natural treasures, including nugget, opal, and pearl jewellery. Of unique interest, the Pink Diamond Room is dedicated to spectacular pieces featuring Argyle Pink Diamonds, the increasingly rare and sought-after gemstones from Western Australia’s Kimberley region.
