Was very interesting, from watching the gold bullion getting made to trying to lift a 12kg gold bar. A Definate must if you're in Perth.

The Mint your is very educational and fun. From the pouring of a gold bar to have coins made with personal inscription... It's worth a visit while in Perth!

Hi, For a single traveller in their 30s travelling by themself, is it worth going to visit Perth Mint. And is there much to do and see there and be interested about? Particularly if you don't have large amounts of money to spend on items there?
