Visiting the Mint is free!
We are so much more than a factory that makes the coins you find in your change. We also make coins that you can keep and collect. We are an award-winning national cultural attraction and a heritage site.
We tell the story of our great country through the coins you use every day. From our wonderful nature, our unique culture and every moment in history that matters most to Aussies.
Immerse yourself in the world of coins, because one and all, coins are Made for Wonder.
