A working factory, a Commonwealth Heritage Site and a multi-tourism award-winning cultural attraction. The Mint puts icons of Australia’s cultural heritage directly into each of the hands of its people and visitors. The image on each Australian coin produced by the Mint are conversation starters and history markers; statements on who we are and where we have come from.

See how coins are made through the factory viewing platform and interactive multimedia displays. Spot Titan, the Mint’s robot whose job it is to pour coins into a hopper. Discover the fascinating world of coins through a free guided tour. Mint your very own coin or buy a coin from the Mint’s Coin Shop as a memento of your visit or a gift for a loved one. End your visit with a coffee or light snack at the Mint’s Cafe. For a list of exhibitions, displays, and public programs.

Everyone has a coin story to share. Whether it was the first gift from the tooth fairy, the sixpence in the Christmas pudding, the vital ‘head or tails’ decision, or the hours spent collecting and admiring special pieces – Visit today and discover the world of coins, because one and all, coins are Made for Wonder!
