Melbourne Mint Coins turned to Digital Thing to build and launch an eCommerce platform they could use to sell coins online.

Digital Thing custom-designed and built the website with WordPress using the WooCommerce plugin. We stuck closely to Melbourne Mint’s style guide for the design and kept the focus on the coins and the Mint’s prestige.The website works across desktop, tablet and mobile devices using the responsive web design method.


As with all our website builds, the website is developed with best practice SEO semantic code, HTML5 and CSS3. We also custom developed a plugin using WooCommerce to integrate the website into the Mint’s existing systems, which will make the management of the website seamless for the Mint’s administration staff.

A high priority for Melbourne Mint was to build a database. Digital Thing built a popup for first time users to sign up to the Melbourne Mint newsletter. As a result, within the first month Melbourne Mint collected over 500 emails.
