School groups who are interested in discovering more about Western Australia's golden history, the State’s gold mining industry, precious metal coining, and Australian currency, should consider The Perth Mint for their next school excursion.

Inside our historic premises, opened in 1899, your guide will introduce our world-class exhibition and its mesmerising journey of gold discovery. You’ll encounter extraordinary gold nuggets, hold a large bullion bar, behold the world’s largest gold coin valued at over $75 million and see the exhibition’s latest precious metal specimens ‘King Henry’ and ‘The Karratha Queen’. Then watch your guide transform molten gold into a gleaming solid gold bar during a traditional gold pour in the old melting house.
