Value Change

Without the beneficiation process, raw materials remain less valuable. Rock remains rock, scrap remains scrap. Our role is not simply to refine, it is to create value. Now, almost 100 years later, Rand Refinery is one of the largest gold refineries in the world.

Since 1920, we have refined nearly 50 000 tons of gold – almost one third of all the gold mined worldwide. Our longstanding history as one of the world’s leading refiners has seen Rand Refinery receive global accreditation, international referee status and ISO certification.

We proudly offer a range of responsible gold Kilo Bars, gold Krugerrands, and gold Minted Bars in various sizes and designs.

About Us

SINCE





1920




We’re not minters nor miners, we are the ones who add value to metals and peoples’ lives. We do this by adding value to the South African economy by turning raw materials into valuable possessions.

Established by the Chamber of Mines of South Africa in 1920, Rand Refinery is one of the largest integrated single-site precious metals refining and smelting complex in the world.

Today, we continuously ensure that the change we facilitate to our raw materials return the greatest value for our suppliers and clients.

What We Offer

Our offering extends across the precious metals value chain and begins with world-class smelting, evaluation, refining and recovery of precious metals. From there, we fabricate a variety of products for investment and retail.

The Rand Refinery mark can be found on cast and minted bars. Acting as an agent for our precious metals depositing customers, we provide 24-hour turnaround assaying and state-of-the-art vault and logistics services.

We are beneficiators. Our task is a simple one. To take raw materials and make them more valuable. 

We don’t do this through elaborate marketing messages or fancy brochures. We do it through a process that ultimately brings about valuable change.

Our Vision

Our Mission

Our role as beneficiation experts is to ensure that the change we facilitate to the raw materials we are given, return the greatest amount of value for our suppliers and our clients, all the while ensuring a positive influence on everyone and everything around us. We’re driven to create value change.
