“A visit to the Royal Australian Mint is a unique experience accessible to everyone.
Head upstairs to our factory viewing area to see where the coins are made. Titan the robot is often dancing, even when the factory isn’t producing coins. Interactive touchscreens explain the coin making process and videos take you even closer to the action! Take a walk through our galleries of rare and significant coins, and watch a short film on our history.
Downstairs you can mint your own $1 coin (cost is $3), browse the coin shop and enjoy refreshments at the café.”
