For the first time in history, Kinesis is providing a yield on gold and silver. Find out everything you need to know about receiving your yields.
Take a look at our easy-to-follow yield walkthrough tutorial, where Kinesis provides a step-by-step guide to help you understand the dashboard feature.
By minting Kinesis currencies KAU and KAG, you are taking physical fully allocated bullion and making it digital. KAU and KAG are identical to any other investment-grade bullion in the market, only cheaper to buy, and stored in our world-class vaults at no cost.
By digitalising your bullion you are able to use your metals as everyday currency to spend, send or save in a stable store of value, providing a safe haven for your investments and everyday cash holdings.
The Kinesis Mint allows you to effectively behave as your own central bank, bringing to life your own currency where the legal title remains solely with you – the holder. The Kinesis Minter’s yield rewards you for doing this by paying back a proportionate share on your eligible minted KAU and KAG every single month.
Our yield display keeps you up to date with how much you’ve earned.

Yes, all Kinesis Yields, including the Minter’s Yield, are retroactively calculated. You will have been credited with all qualifying yields accrued from the beginning of your activity, between April 2019 and June 2021, in one lump sum on the first yield payout date.
The Minter’s yield is designed to reward Kinesis users for minting and then using that minted KAU and KAG. In order to be eligible for the Minter’s Yield, you must first buy Kinesis Gold or Silver in the process of creating your own Kinesis currencies (aka. Minting), either using fiat or through the EPD process. You then activate your Minter’s Yield by either selling or spending your KAG or KAU on the Kinesis Exchange or using the debit card or transferring it to an unrelated, verified account or wallet.
For a full breakdown please read our comprehensive eligibility guide.

Although the vast majority of Kinesis users will be required to take no action, we still urge all participants to check that all addresses previously minted to are listed in the address linking widget on the platform. However, If you have only ever minted to the Kinesis Money platform via the Mint, your account should automatically be linked and no further action would be required. Those who have previously minted to an external wallet, will be required to prove ownership of that wallet by linking it.
We would like to emphasise that all unlisted addresses will not receive a yield. This is why it is imperative that all users follow the steps to ensure all addresses previously minted to are linked and listed. A comprehensive linking guide can be found here.
