Former Royal Mint

Two blocks north-west of the Supreme Court of Victoria, the Old Royal Mint was built in Renaissance Revival style, set off by a dazzling coat of arms. Originally constructed to mint the bounty from Victoria’s goldfields, it operated until 1968 and is now home to the Hellenic Museum, which holds items from the Byzantine period and displays related to Greek migration to Australia. 280 William St; (03) 8615 9016; open 10am–3pm Tues–Thurs.
