      Very informative tour. Jarrad was knowledgeable, happy to answer questions and we enjoyed his humour. We took our grandchildren who were very impressed after seeing the moulten gold poured. Good value.

      I've never been to a mint before and I am glad that my first visit to a mint was so informative. I loved the gold pouring demonstration. They had some fun activities like holding a gold bar, measuring your worth with the current gold price or decorating your own coin.

      Well and truly worth a visit if you are in Perth. Staff are knowledgeable. The large coin is interesting as are the displays.
      The only let down here was the large tour group size which included a bus group which I know can't be helped but capping numbers would allow for a better experience.
