When shopping for gold and silver bars and coins, you want to choose a supplier you can trust.

MyGold is an official New Zealand distributor of bullion from the Perth Mint.

History of the Perth Mint

The Perth Mint was originally created as a branch of the 1,000 year old Royal Mint of Britain. In 1970, the Perth Mint was transferred to the Western Australian Government. The Act of State Parliament in 1987 created the Gold Corporation to operate the mint. Today, the Perth Mint remains the exclusive manufacturer of the collective pieces from the internationally lauded Gold and Silver Bullion Coin Program from the Australian Federal Government. The Perth Mint’s agreement with the Commonwealth Treasury also permits their operator to mint and market gold, silver, and platinum Australian legal tender to both investors and collectors around the globe.

Historically, the Perth Mint has achieved worldwide recognition for breaking gold records. In 2011, the Perth Mint cast the Australian Kangaroo One Tonne Gold Coin—the largest and most valuable gold coin ever created. The current estimated value of the coin is $50 million AUD.
