A Virtual Tour of the Royal Australian Mint (Stage 2, Stage 3, Stage 4)

On Demand

Join Georgie, our Digital Officer, as she takes you on a digital journey through our Proof Room, Tool Room and Circulating Coin Hall at the Mint.


The Royal Australian Mint is Australia’s official Mint. It is the place where every Australian coin in your pocket, purse or piggy bank was made. Since it opened in 1965, it has produced more than fifteen billion circulating coins.

Learn about our minting process, from a coin’s initial design all the way through to shipping it off to a bank. You’ll encounter a coin press so big we had to bring it in through the roof, vacuum furnaces that can be as hot as 960℃, forklifts that operate without a driver, and so much more!

To access the excursion, select the ‘BOOK NOW’ button below, enter your details and you will be sent the YouTube link.

Please note that this excursion is pre-recorded. 


BROUGHT TO YOU BY: Royal Australian Mint
