Celebrating 25 years of Perth Mint’s Certificate Program

Apr 21, 2022

Gold Corporation, trading as The Perth Mint, is celebrating 25 years of its one-of-a-kind certificate program – the only government-guaranteed precious metals certificate program in the world.

PMCP was developed closely alongside one of The Perth Mint’s longest-running distribution partners, US-based Asset Strategies International (ASI) – an organisation that also celebrates its 40th anniversary of operations in 2022.

The Perth Mint Acting Chief Executive Office Jane King said the dual anniversaries were a great opportunity to celebrate the longstanding PMCP partnership between the two organisations.

“The Perth Mint is immensely proud of our certificate program and equally proud of our strong historical relationship with Asset Strategies International and congratulate the business on its 40-year anniversary,” she said.

“Since the program began in 1997, The Perth Mint has established a trusted network of global distributors who proudly market our product and have helped make it the success it is today.

“The Perth Mint is Australia’s largest, fully integrated precious metals enterprise, and the only business of its kind in the world that is fully backed by government guarantee – meaning every ounce of gold, silver and platinum held can be exchanged for physical metal.”

The Perth Mint Depository Manager Caroline Campbell-Watt said PMCP had been a success story since its inception 25 years ago.

“It’s an extraordinary achievement that The Perth Mint holds more than AUD 1 billion on deposit for these clients, and testament to the value and reputation of the program.”

“The Perth Mint thanks all of our valued active distributors and looks forward to working together with each of them in the future to continue to bring Australian gold to the world.”

ASI Chairman and CEO Michael Checkan and ASI President and COO Rich Checkan are thrilled the program has been rewarding for their customers.    

“It has been an honour to offer this amazing program to our clients for the past quarter century. We have seen firsthand the positive, life-changing good it has done for hard-working, everyday people,” Rich Checkan said.  

In addition to ASI, PMPC’s distributors include: BFI, Euro Pacific Capital, Goldcore, Jaggard’s, PMCG, Thornton, GoldSilver Central and LPM.Jane King and Caroline Campbell-Watt at The Perth Mint.
