Read our latest article here

The Perth Mint is currently experiencing increased demand for our products and services, however customers can still invest in precious metals including The Australian Kangaroo Silver 1oz Bullion Coin or purchase allocated or unallocated gold and silver with our depository online services.

Whilst there can be scenarios where there is a shortage of precious metals in a specific form (for example 1 kilo bars), this in no way indicates there is an overall shortage of physical precious metals.

As one of the world’s largest refiners of gold and silver, The Perth Mint is ideally placed to service investors looking to acquire precious metals, as we have a steady stream of precious metals coming into our refinery from gold and silver miners on a daily basis.

Investing at The Perth Mint

Investors can choose from bullion bars and coins through to online options, exchange traded products and a digital app. Your gold and silver investment is guaranteed to be of the highest quality because The Perth Mint refinery is one of a select group of gold refiners with accreditation from five major global old exchanges. We are the only mint operation in the world which has a unique government guarantee and are dedicated to providing ethically sourced gold and silver.
