The Perth Mint has appointed the first international distributor for its new Depository Online bullion investor platform.

Singapore-based GoldSilver Central Pte Ltd specialises in a comprehensive range of gold, silver and platinum products from internationally-renowned manufacturers, including The Perth Mint. Under its ground-breaking appointment, the company can now offer clients direct access to the benefits of the Perth Mint Depository Online (PMDO) system via a co-branded web presence available at https://www.perthmint.com/storage/gsc/login.html.

Going live late last year, PMDO enables investors to easily buy gold, silver or platinum and have it safely stored in the Mint's vaults in Australia, all covered by a Guarantee from the Government of Western Australia.

The secure platform facilitates immediate manual market orders or automatic execution when an investor’s target metal price is reached 24 hours a day Monday to Friday (AWST zone). With extremely competitive transaction fees from 1% to as low as 0.20% depending on trade size, accounts can be established with as little as $50.

Congratulating GoldSilver Central on its appointment as the inaugural PMDO distributor, John Durham, Manager - Depository Services, said The Perth Mint was delighted to have further strengthened its alliance with the organisation.

“GoldSilver Central is a trusted company focussed on making physical bullion investment as accessible and flexible as possible to private individuals,” he said. “Providing an extra dimension to the way its clients can best react to live pricing of precious metals, the PDMO secure trading platform is an ideal addition to its portfolio of services.”

GoldSilver Central offers access to the PMDO secure trading platform via a bespoke module that allows clients to buy and sell precious metals from within its existing website. John Durham added that other responsible precious metal businesses wishing to provide their clients with similar access are welcome to make contact with Depository Services at The Perth Mint.
