Perth Mint Achieves Record Half-Year Results


The Perth Mint has recorded its best half-yearly performance in 117 years of operations with record revenue of $4.4 billion and a pre-tax profit of $24.9 million for Q1/Q2 of the 2015/16 financial year.

Owned by the Government of Western Australia, The Perth Mint is Australia’s only multi-accredited and vertically integrated precious metals business. The Mint systematically adds value to Australian precious metals at every stage of production while generating global interest in the asset class.

Chief Executive Officer, Richard Hayes, who has led the organisation’s new administration since 1 July 2015, said the past six months had been a period of renewal and innovation at the Mint, which included the execution of new operational and product development strategies. “These efforts have strengthened our position and provided us with greater flexibility to respond to market demands.


“Examples of this include the launch of our Depository Online precious metals investment and storage platform, and the release of a new silver bullion coin that is manufactured in large volumes using our own unique production method, which has greatly encouraged sales,” he said.
