Visit the Mint

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

Visit the Mint

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. Discover the wonder of coins today!

The Royal Australian Mint’s free public tours continue in 2022. The safety of our staff and visitors is our primary focus. Additional measures will be in place to ensure tours are held in a safe manner in compliance with COVID-19 restrictions.


What will I see and do when visiting the Mint?

A visit to the Royal Australian Mint is a unique experience, accessible to everyone.

From our wonderful nature to our unique culture, we tell the story of all aspects of Australian life through the coins you use every day. And who can’t relate to coins?

We all have a coin story to share. Whether it was the first gift from the tooth fairy, the sixpence in the Christmas pudding or the vital ‘heads or tails’ decision, coins have been around for many centuries and we all use and value them differently.

On your trip to the Mint, visit our factory viewing area for a bird’s eye view of where our coins are made. See if you can spot Titan, our giant robot, and a few other robot friends who help make the coins.

Interactive touchscreens around the Mint explain the coin making process, and videos take you even closer to the action! Our galleries tell the stories of rare and significant coins.

After you’ve seen the gallery, browse our coin shop where you can even mint your own $1 coin (cost is $3). Then enjoy a light refreshment at our café.
