Visit the Mint

Come to the Mint where every Australian coin in the pockets of millions of Australians is made.

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.
