The first British Currency Mint outside Britain is built in Macquarie Street of Sydney. Originally a General Hospital founded by General Lachlan Macquarie, it was rebuilt into a British Mint with a Coin Factory on the south wing after the gold rush in New South Wales. It prides itself with the latest technology on coin fabricating in its own era. Today, it’s the closest place to the heart of a dreamer and romancer. The coin factory is converted into The Mint museum exhibiting souvenirs of the earliest coin production. Being founded in an antiquated place, every detail of The Mint only parades classic beauty of the late 1800 thus setting up a romantic mood for the couples visiting the heritage site.
To define its exquisiteness, The Mint holds significant events like elite weddings and cocktail parties of Sydney and the rest of the continent. The Mint Café even makes the atmosphere warmer, perhaps teeming with the sweet scent of affection, which is just the best spot to celebrate love. And the last stop of the guests will be The Mint Shop where precious coins and other treasures dating back from the past can be bought as souvenirs.
The faded walls, the low lighting, the very old architecture and everything about The Mint turn any typical moment into a memorable, romantic one.
