Swan Hills Visits Perth Mint

The 29th April, 19 members from Swan Hills had a wonderful, entertaining and informative excursion to Perth Mint. The Perth Mint was once producing common day legal coinage, nowadays it produces gold bars and commemorative coinage for investors and collectors. Today, common legal tender is printed in Canberra. The Perth Mint has a great collection of natural gold specimens and gold coins, the 1-tonne gold coin will be remembered, and the gold pour and the story of the room in which it takes place is always a winner with the tourists. Afterwards all enjoyed a welcome lunch at The Grosvenor Hotel opposite Perth Mint. It is lovely to be a tourist in your own city.
