What will I see and do when visiting the Mint?

The Mint is easy to explore and learn about how all of Australia’s circulating coins are made.

Upstairs you can watch a DVD, see our collection of old and rare Australian coins and observe the factories from our factory viewing area. There are interactive touchscreens available to thoroughly explain the coin making process - the videos take you closer to the action than many of the staff see themselves! 

Downstairs you can make a coin, browse the coin shop and the enjoy refreshments at the cafe. 

Can I still buy coins?

The Coin Shop will be open as per times above.

Our Contact Centre will also be closed from Monday 24 December 2018 and will reopen on Monday 7 January 2019. During the holiday period our eShop will still be accessible, click here to start shopping!
