Rand Refinery, a leading bullion brand.

by Lakhwinder Singh Bullion seller
The official registration of Rand Refinery took place in 1920; however, refinery operations did not begin until late in 1921. The company had a start-up capital of £50,000 and shares were distributed among the gold-mining businesses that were members of the Chamber of Mines, which is now known as the Minerals Council of South Africa.

It was a turbulent time in history, just like the present day: people were still putting their lives back together after the devastation caused by the Spanish flu, World War I had just ended, and there was a recession coming. The economy at the time had no choice but to be optimistic about the future. The Roaring Twenties quickly replaced the discordant notes at the beginning of the decade with rapid industrial and economic growth, increased consumer demand, and the introduction of significant new fashion, lifestyle, and cultural trends. London The relatively open market conditions of the 1920s supported gold producers from South Africa, who eventually began to exert their influence. 

The fact that they were not receiving the best price or the lowest handling fees for gold produced on the Witwatersrand was one of their main complaints. Because all of South Africa's gold had to be transported and processed in London, gold producers on the continent's southernmost tip had to pay a lot for refining. South African mines spent approximately £500,000—equivalent to more than £51 million in today's money—to transport gold to London in the ten years prior to the actual conception of the Rand Refinery. Demands for the establishment of a gold refinery in South Africa were fueled by these exorbitant costs. 

As was to be expected, the Bank of England was forced to consider a number of options because it was concerned about losing its position as the primary market for the global supply of gold. One option was to build a new refinery in London to free-up all South African gold. Rand Refinery became one of the early proponents of disruption without anyone's knowledge. When Rand Refinery emerged from the ground sixteen months after construction began on August 20, the Chamber of Mines' persistence paid off handsomely. It connected the refinery not only with the mines, which later included gold from mines in the then-British colonies of Rhodesia (Zimbabwe) and Tanganyika (Tanzania). It was built on a stand in Elandsfontein (later Germiston) Junction, South Africa's largest railroad junction.
