Provenance is important to us. It’s also increasingly significant to buyers and investors of gold and silver, who value the assurance that they are not only buying an exceptional precious metal but also making a substantial contribution to the producing mining communities.

Betts Metals is proud to be the only refinery in the UK that is audited and FLOCERT-accredited to produce Fairtrade gold and silver. What is more, we are the world’s first Single Mine Origin gold refiner. This, along with our unparalleled in-house manufacturing capabilities, ensures that we are leading the way in providing a broad range of ethical options for physical precious metal investment.






Single Mine Origin ‘SMO’ gold is 24 carat pure gold, produced and refined from one single mine site and plant. In an age where traceability is paramount, SMO-certification is the ultimate stamp of approval in precious metals.

SMO confirms that your gold is derived from a legitimate mining operation. It confirms that your gold holds no ties to conflict and has been produced at a mine where trade relationships are upheld with unwavering responsibility.

By purchasing SMO gold, investors and commercial buyers are supporting miners who are being paid a just wage under secure and safe employment. This in turn has a positive effect on the lives of the miners’ families and local communities, who can benefit from the sustainability initiatives in place at the mine site and from residing in a region where legal business thrives.  

But SMO standards are not just advocated at the mine site, they are present at every stage of production. This is why SMO gold coins are produced at the Betts Metals refinery – the most ethical gold refinery in the world and now the world’s first SMO refinery.
