Mint day!
We visited here with our 5 year old grandson, fascinating to learn how the coins are made, he loved watching about Titan and Robbie. The Eureka press for making your own coins is very good, too. The staff were all very informative and it was a fab day. Felt very safe as all measures were in place for Co-vid

Something for everyone
A really educational experience with things to see for adults & kids of all ages. Seeing where they make coins & all them glistening coins in a barrel ready for distribution was cool. It was a great history lesson on Australian currency & seeing how currency has evolved was really interesting

Loved it! So interesting
There is something quirky about this place. It's got lots of interesting information and static displays plus a viewing area where you see the mint working. It's out of the city centre in Deakin and you can get there by bus, taxi and uber. If you go by car, the parking is good…

The staff were excellent, very polite, helpful and knowledgeable. The exhibition is a good hour or so long, engaged the kids well and taught me heaps about coins. The facilities were immaculate. It's all free. Highly recommended.

Interesting place to visit and learn about coins history, making process. Informative with lots of description as well as a few activities including tours. Free entry and free parking great attraction for primary school children and coin enthusiasts.

One of the must-visit places if you're in Canberra. You'll learn about Australia's money history, and you'll also see actual coins from the early days of Australia. The coin factory is also here and you can see the workers work on the coins. You can also mint your own coin. There is also a souvenir shop to buy limited editions coins and other stuff.
