Welcome to The Perth Mint

The Perth Mint

Established in 1899, the Perth Mint is Australia's oldest operating mint. Originally built to make gold sovereigns for the British Empire, nowadays the mint produces precious metal coins for collectors and coin investors. Visitors to the mint will see the largest collection of natural gold nuggets in Australia, including the Golden Beauty nugget, as well as watching molten gold being poured to make bars and the pressing of precious coins. A unique range of gold jewellery and coins are also available at the Perth Mint Shop.

The Australian Dollar (AUD) is divided into 100 cents. Banks and bureaux de change exchange most foreign currencies. Travellers cheques are also welcome everywhere, but banks take a small commission and it is better to take cheques in major currencies (e.g. US dollars or Euros) to avoid additional charges. Credit cards are widely accepted and ATMs are freely available throughout the country. Banking hours are generally 9.30am to 4pm Monday to Thursday, and 9.30am to 5pm on Friday, but some banks offer extended hours and some are open on Saturday mornings.
