Work Experience at the Mint

The Royal Australian Mint is able to offer limited opportunities for work experience placements for students from school sponsored work experience programs.

To be able to secure a placement, it is best to send your request as early as possible in advance of your proposed placement dates.  Please note that while we endeavour to provide a worthwhile placement, we are not able to guarantee to accommodate all requests.

As the Mint has manufacturing areas, some placements will require the student to supply and wear protective clothing such as long pants and safety shoes.

To assist us in finding a worthwhile placement for you, please complete the Request for Work Experience Placement form below and email to  All requests will be acknowledged and we will advise you and/or your Work Experience Coordinator if a placement can be offered within 4 weeks from your request being received.
