Money, Banking and Mint Museums

Bank of England Museum

The Bank of England Museum is located within the Bank of England in the City of London. The museum displays a wide-ranging collection detailing the history of the Bank from its foundation in 1694 to the modern-day.

The displays include a representation of a late 18th-century office, known as the Stock Office,  where holders of Bank stock would come to collect their dividends.

Exhibits cover the history of the bank in chronological order, including many images showing the history of the bank and its building.

Perth Mint

The Perth Mint is Australia’s official bullion mint and wholly owned by the Government of Western Australia.

Established in 1899, before Australia’s Federation in 1901, the Perth Mint was the last of the Australian colonial branches of the United Kingdom’s Royal Mint.

It was intended to refine gold from the gold rushes and mint gold sovereigns and half-sovereigns for the British Empire.

Old Treasury Building, Melbourne

The Old Treasury Building was once home to the Treasury Department of Victoria and is now a museum of Melbourne.

The museum focuses on Victoria’s history, the history of Indigenous Victorians, the first white settlement, Ned Kelly, and the Gold Rush.

The museum itself is housed in the mansion of the archaeologist Heinrich Schliemann.

The museum’s collection has 600,000 objects, mainly coins and medals, standard masses, dies, stamps, and others, from the 14th century BC until modern times.
