The Perth Mint, which refines nearly all the bullion output from the world’s second-biggest producer, sees rising sales this year as global concerns trigger demand for haven assets.
Uncertainty over the new leadership in the U.S. and concerns over bank debt issues in Europe, as well as a drop in prices and demand for special edition Lunar New Year coins, helped boost sales recently, said Neil Vance, group manager of minted products at The Perth Mint. About 80 percent of the mint’s coins and minted bars are exported to the U.S. and Germany, he said.
