What we do

The Perth Mint is Australia’s largest fully integrated, innovative precious metals enterprise, providing premium gold, silver and platinum products and services to markets throughout the world.

We have invested over one hundred years in servicing and promoting the gold industry by developing and nurturing the markets for refined precious metal products across the globe: specifically, gold and silver bullion and highly-sought-after collectable coins.

As one of Western Australia’s largest exporters, we distribute some $18 billion worth of pure gold, silver and platinum bullion bars and coins to investors in more than 100 countries annually. 

Globally, we belong to a select group of gold refiners who have accreditation from five of the major gold exchanges. This elite group is trusted, implicitly, to meet the highest of standards. Global mining companies not only entrust us to refine gold and silver to the highest levels of purity through its state of the art facilities, but they do so knowing we will abide by the pinnacle of environmental and safety standards throughout the entirety of the process.

Issuing an array of bullion and collectable legal tender coins, bars and medallions each year, we are proud to showcase Australia’s icons to the world and celebrate a variety of popular universal themes, through the original artistry of our coin designs and creative concepts.

Through our depository, we also provide the world’s sole government guaranteed precious metals investment and storage program.  Clients of all sizes - from individuals to sovereign wealth funds - entrust us to securely store their investments in our network of state-of-the-art vaults. 

Located in Perth, Western Australia, and still operating in our original premises in the east end of the city, we also host a premier tourist destination. Committed to sharing the fascinating story of Western Australian gold, and our own rich history, with the global community, our world-class Gold Exhibition brings these stories to life, while  our elegantly appointed retail shop offers customers a selection of our State’s natural treasures, exquisite jewellery and giftware. 

The relationship we have forged with both miners and consumers is unique, and is at the heart of our global success. This relationship spans the entire spectrum of the precious metal value chain, from the mines themselves, to the delivery of physical products and investment solutions to markets the world over.
