MEDIA RELEASE

GOLDSILVER CENTRAL TO LAUNCH THE PERTH MINT CERTIFICATE PROGRAM IN SINGAPORE

The Perth Mint, in partnership with GoldSilver Central Pte Ltd ('GoldSilver Central’), a Singapore home-grown precious metals bullion dealer, announced today the official launch of The Perth Mint Certificate Program in Singapore.

Currently, GoldSilver Central is the sole distributor of the world’s only government guaranteed precious metals program in Asia.

The Perth Mint Certificate Program provides investors with the option to hold certificates with full precious metals backing that is completely insured by Lloyd’s of London. Investors are given flexible options regarding their precious metals ownership such as allocated storage, unallocated storage, and more.

“GoldSilver Central is greatly honoured to be appointed as an Approved Dealer for The Perth Mint Certificate Program. The Perth Mint has a tradition of excellence, an impeccable track record and is an institution that investors trust,” said Brian Lan, Managing Director of GoldSilver Central.

“This appointment further elevates our reputation as one of Singapore’s leading precious metals dealers with a vast importance placed on credibility and knowledge of precious metals investment,” he continued.

In line with Singapore’s aim to be the gold hub in Asia and as private wealth starts to look for a home in Asia, The Perth Mint Certificate Program provides a good avenue for global high net worth investors to diversify their portfolio and own precious metals in Singapore.

Commenting on awarding the status of the program’s approved dealership to GoldSilver Central, Nigel Moffatt, Director of The Perth Mint Depository business said, “The Perth Mint does not make Certificate Program Approved Dealer appointments lightly. GoldSilver Central was an obvious candidate given their experienced team has used innovative marketing strategies to become a valued retailer of our minted products in Singapore.”

“However, the deciding factor was their demonstrated commitment to honest advice and focus on the client - being wholly owned by the Government of Western Australia, it is paramount that The Perth Mint’s dealers possess the highest levels of integrity and professionalism.”

At present, GoldSilver Central is the only approved dealer in Asia to offer The Perth Mint Certificate Program to investors.
