A massive surge in demand for gold beginning mid-way through April resulted in a record month at The Perth Mint.
Clients purchased more than 110,000oz of gold bullion products, while demand for silver coins and bars also leapt significantly to 1,102,465oz for the month*.
The catalyst was a dramatic day in the market which saw the price per ounce of gold fall to its lowest level in almost two years.
Far from being deterred, gold buyers around the world piled into physical metal to take advantage of the new price levels.
