We have a bunch of friendly and knowledgeable guides who love to share their passion for coins and who are great at bringing the history of coins to life. 

Come and enjoy special access to Australia’s coin history and production. From our favourite coin stories to a walk above the Mint factory floor, our tours get you closer to the action.

Free guided tours of the Mint run every day of the year except Christmas and Good Friday.

Robots at work

Australia needs new coins all the time so it’s a good thing Titan, our robot factory worker, never gets tired. You can also see Penny – our driverless forklift, and Robbie, our fully automated packing machine!
