The Perth Mint Certificate Programme (PMCP) is operated by the Perth Mint of Western Australia, a mint wholly owned by the Government of Western Australia.
The PMCP allows UK investors, savers, and pension funds to own investment grade gold, silver and platinum bullion. Please note that only gold can be held in a pension fund, silver and platinum are excluded.
The Perth Mint is the trading name of Gold Corporation. It is the successor organisation of the Royal Mint’s Perth branch that was founded in 1899. The certificate programme is fully guaranteed by the Government of Western Australia. The government has received an AA+ rating from international rating agencies. PMCP is the only government-guaranteed certificate programme in the world.
GoldCore was appointed as an authorised dealer for PMCP in 2005, and we are one of a select few authorised dealers of the service in the world.
PMCP enables you to safely trade and store precious metals through The Perth Mint’s exclusive network of authorised distributors. Unlike other investment programs, which run online or through an app, PMCP issues physical Precious Metal Certificates as proof of legal ownership for every trade that you make. In the age of digital assets, such tangibility becomes very powerful, offering you greater protection against cyber risks or technological failure.
Every ounce of metal is fully insured under The Perth Mint’s Government Guarantee, keeping your holdings safe and protected under any and every circumstance.
With a global distribution network, you can redeem your metal holdings and have it delivered to your doorstep at any time.
Held to the highest standards, you’ll receive LBMA accredited, investment grade bullion.
Each time you make a trade, you’ll receive a unique physical Certificate in your name, detailing your precious metal holdings.
Redemptions can only be made against the physical certificate, providing assurance of the safety of your holdings – legally entitled to you and only you.
There are no storage fees or fabrication costs for *unallocated holdings, making the Perth Mint Certificate Programme one of the most cost-effective ways to own precious metals in the world.
