BULLION BARS AND COINS

The Perth Mint has a large and growing number of clients who purchase precious metals for their Self-Managed Super Fund. If you’ve been wondering whether it is possible to diversify your super investments through the addition of bullion, The Perth Mint is a trusted source of investment-grade gold and silver with plenty of experience in helping SMSF trustees.

Buy and Store Yourself

You can purchase a full range of official Australian bullion coins and an extensive choice of small investor bars via www.perthmintbullion.com, the Mint’s specialist bullion sales site featuring ‘live’ pricing.

Made from 99.99% pure gold and 99.9% pure silver, Australia’s bullion coin line-up includes the world-renowned Australian Kangaroo gold coin series, the Australian Kookaburra silver coin series, and Australian Koala silver coin series. An extremely popular alternative, the Australian Lunar coin series is offered in both pure gold and silver.

All web clients buying physical bullion are required to register before buying, so when signing up on behalf of your SMSF, make sure you choose the ‘Trust/Super Fund’ option in the simple registration process.

Gold and silver purchased via the website (or the Mint’s Bullion Telephone Desk - 1300 201 112) will be securely delivered to a customer’s nominated address. If the precious metals are to be stored at home, trustees should ensure that they will not fall foul of the rule against use of art/collectables/personal assets.

Store at The Perth Mint

The Perth Mint Depository, which holds metal worth A$3.5 billion on behalf of clients worldwide, is a convenient alternative for SMSF investors who do not want the inconvenience and risk of storing their precious metals themselves.

The Depository offers bank account-style facilities for which each client’s balance is measured in Troy ounces of gold and/or silver bullion.

Client metal is stored in high security premises on an ‘allocated’ or ‘pool allocated’ basis, which attract ongoing storage fees, or an ‘unallocated’ basis, on which no storage fees apply.

Allocated means your bars and coins are fully segregated for other investors’ metal in the vault. Clients may sell or take delivery of their metal at any time. Unallocated means your bullion is held in the Mint’s pool of precious metal, which is maintained in unsegregated storage on a fungible basis. You may sell your metal at any time, or request physical delivery as allocated coins or bars (fabrication fees apply).

Perth Mint Gold, which is traded on the Australian Stock Exchange (code: PMGOLD), presents a different method for SMSF trustees to invest in bullion. Traded through a stockbroker with the same ease and convenience as investing in shares, Perth Mint Gold tracks the underlying price of gold and attracts an annual management fee of just 0.15%.
