2021 Free tours at the Royal Australian Mint


From 28 June 2021, in line with ACT Health requirements, all visitors to the Mint must wear a face mask unless they meet the requirements for those who do not need to wear a face mask (persons aged 12 years or under, or a person with a physical or mental health illness or condition, or disability that makes wearing a fitted face covering unsuitable).

We are delighted to continue our free public tours in 2021

As the safety of staff and visitors is our primary concern, additional measures will be in place to ensure these tours are held in a safe manner and are in compliance with current COVID-19 restrictions.

To ensure efficient and accurate contact tracing in the ACT, and in compliance with ACT Government Regulations, it will be mandatory for visitors to the Mint to use the Check In CBR app from Saturday 6 March 2021.
