The Perth Mint


Today we decided to take a look at The Perth Mint





It stands right in the centre of Perth and is open for visits! Visitors are given a little of the history of the mint and of the gold rush that happened in Western Australia!!!

During the tour of the mint it is possible to see a gold ingot being made!! The same gold can be melted down and made into an ingot every day for twenty years without losing any volume!!!!!

Not bad eh!!!

Kindest wishes and love

Looks like fun! If you find any spare ingots you know where to pass them on!!!
