Royal Australian Mint
More than a coin factory, The Mint offers a glimpse into Australia’s own story told through rare coins from the National Coin Collection. Everyone has 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 the factory viewing area for a bird’s eye view of where Australian coins are made. Discover the mint making process using interactive touchscreens around the Mint and watch videos taking you even closer to the action! View the galleries telling the stories of rare and significant coins. Lastly, browse the coin shop where you can even mint your own $1 coin.
