Come to the Mint, where every single Australian coin in the pockets of millions of Australians is made.

While wandering through the Mint's observation gallery you can look into the coin production factory and marvel at Titan, one of the strongest robots in the world.

Spend some time in the theatrette where a video will take you behind the scenes to explain the fascinating process of making coins.

Check out the rare and historically significant coins on show from the National Coin Collection, which is held in the vaults of the Mint.

Mint your own $1 coin and browse the Mint Coin Shop where you can find great gifts, mementos of your visit or even start your own collection!
