Topics [ gold investment ]


The 2015 Precious Metals Investment Symposium aims to educate people about why they should be interested in gold and silver. “We’re not giving advice; we’re educating people,” says organiser Kerry Stevenson, who has lined up an impressive array of keynote speakers, including The Perth Mint’s precious metal analyst, Bron Suchecki.

Kerry promises some fun too. “The theme for this year’s Symposium is back to the asset of the future. It’s 30 years since ‘Back to the Future’ the movie was made. So we’re going to have the DeLorean car at the event,” she says, revealing specially themed coins will be available on the first evening!

Big Cut In Gold Bar Price Presents Perfect Opportunity To Build Bullion Stack

Topics [ invest in gold buy gold bullion bars ]


The Perth Mint has developed the perfect package for anyone thinking about buying gold.

Ultra-low priced bar

While stocks last, the premium on 1oz cast bars made from 99.99% pure gold has been slashed from $35 to just $20. Backed by a Government guarantee of purity and the Mint’s century of refining expertise, this popular bar now represents an unbeatable proposition for new investors and well as seasoned gold bugs.

[‘Premium’ is the amount charged by every refiner to cover costs of fabrication, such as wages, and other marketing and distribution costs.]

Representing the best combination of value and trust in Australia, the re-priced Perth Mint 1oz gold cast bar offers a great incentive to get into bullion buying.

Hassle-free buying

Announced earlier this month, proof of ID is no longer required for anyone buying up to $5,000 of precious metal by phone from The Perth Mint. New customer accounts can be established immediately and buyers can place their first order during the same call!

Shopping for bullion in person at The Perth Mint Shop is equally straightforward.

With new ultra-low pricing, both telephone and walk-in customers could currently easily acquire two 1oz cast gold bars and still have plenty of room within the price limit to take advantage of a range of silver coins and bars.

[To purchase the 1oz cast bar or place an order in excess of $5,000 online at www.perthmintbullion.com, customers are required to satisfy ID requirements specified in the Australian Government’s Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing Act 2006.]

To take delivery or not?

While many investors prefer to have bullion shipped to their home or another convenient address, others are sensitive to issues of safety and security. With billions of dollars of investors’ gold and silver securely stored in its vault, The Perth Mint Depository provides a convenient and cost-effective solution for anyone looking for complete peace of mind.

Shop, Ship, Store Advice Line

To purchase the ultra-low price 1oz cast gold bar while stocks last, or ask about shopping hours, the cost of shipping or secure storage facilities, customers are invited to contact The Perth Mint on: 1300 201 112 or +61 8 9421 7218.
