Sell your precious metals

Turn your gold or other precious metal into money, safely and conveniently.

Given the value and varied uses for gold, silver, platinum and palladium you may look to sell these precious metals from time to time.

You can sell your gold and silver jewellery, nuggets, silver ingots, bullion bars and coins here at The Perth Mint. Our experienced team will guide you through the simple and straightforward selling process. We provide expert assessments, competitive rates and live pricing. You will be paid directly into your nominated bank account and, if you wish, you can then buy new investment bars or coins with your proceeds.

To sell your old gold and other precious metals, simply come to one of our two locations, The Perth Mint Shop and The Perth Mint Refinery, with the required identification.
