Coin World

The coin museum has examples of all the South African coins ever produced. There is also a money press, still in working order. Coins are available for purchase.

Coin Walk tours take visitors through the actual coin production factory. (with effect from January 1998) These tours are suitable for high school children and adults only. The Mint also plans to implement an educational experience for younger children during the second half of 1998. To book for the Coin Walk tours, please phone Theresa.

Coin World (and the South African Mint) is situated alongside the main highway (N1) that connects Johannesburg and Pretoria.
