Gold Corporation Chairman Don Mackay-Coghill Honoured As First Member of The Gold Industry Hall of Fame

October 14, 2016

The Perth Mint is delighted to announce that Mr Don Mackay-Coghill was this week inducted into The Gold Industry Hall of Fame at the 2016 Precious Metals Investment Symposium Gala Awards Dinner in Sydney.


Mr Mackay-Coghill, who has spent his entire career in the gold industry, is the Chairman of Gold Corporation, operator of Australia’s largest vertically integrated precious metals enterprise, The Perth Mint.

Commencing his career in South Africa, where he was responsible for introducing the Krugerrand, Mr Mackay-Coghill moved to Western Australia in 1986 to oversee Australia’s successful entry into world bullion coin markets. Under his leadership as Chief Executive Officer of Gold Corporation, a position he held for 17 years, The Perth Mint developed an acclaimed reputation for the quality of its gold, silver and platinum bullion coins.

Mr Richard Hayes, who was appointed Chief Executive Officer of Gold Corporation in 2015 said, “Don has been an inspiration in our industry. His role in establishing Australia as one of the world’s major refiners and suppliers of value-added bullion cannot be underestimated.

“Don is thoroughly deserving of this impressive accolade. On behalf of The Perth Mint and his many industry friends and colleagues, I would like to offer him hearty congratulations on his exceptional achievements.”

During his career, Mr Mackay-Coghill has also served as Joint Chief Executive Officer of the Sydney 2000 Olympic Commemorative Coin Programme, and was a director of The World Gold Council. On his retirement from Gold Corporation, he became a Non-Executive Director. He was also Chairman of AGR Matthey, a precious metals refining joint venture between the Corporation, Johnson Matthey Australia and Newmont Australia.

Chosen by an advisory board consisting of individuals from the precious metals sector with over 200 years combined experience, Mr Mackay-Coghill is the inaugural inductee into The Gold Industry Hall of Fame, an initiative of The Precious Metals Investment Symposium. Attended by major mining, refining, fabrication and retail suppliers, the annual Symposium event provides a forum for Australian precious metals leaders to come together to educate, inform, network and conduct business.
