The Perth Mint depository was created in the 1990s to enable clients to invest in precious metals without the need to take physical delivery.

Our depository now has more than 30,000 clients worldwide. Last year alone, the value of precious metals on deposit at The Perth Mint increased from $2.69 billion to $3.11 billion.

A global leader in precious metals

The Perth Mint is a world-leading fully integrated precious metals business. Founded in 1899 and wholly-owned by the government of Western Australia, our reputation is built on more than a century of refining and minting excellence.

As the operator of Australia’s only gold and silver refinery accredited by the London Bullion Market Association (LBMA), our clients are assured of the stated weight, purity, and integrity of our gold, silver and platinum products.

During the past 30 years, we’ve made almost 51 million bullion and numismatic coins, which have the reputation for being among the highest quality coins in the world. In the process we’ve added value to nearly 270 tonnes of gold and more than 3,000 tonnes of silver.

Uniquely, our depository offers the only government guaranteed investment and storage program in the world, and uses the most extensive central bank grade vaulting facilities in the Southern Hemisphere.

These world class facilities provide multiple storage services, including the established Perth Mint Depository Program (PMDP), and our fastest growing choice for new clients, The Perth Mint Depository Online (PMDO).
