The synthesis of linear symmetric ethynyl‐ and acetylide‐amidinates of the coinage metals is presented. Starting with the desilylation of the complexes [{Me$_{3}$SiC≡CC(NDipp)$_{2}$}$_{2}$M$_{2}$] (Dipp=2,6‐diisopropylphenyl) (M=Cu, Au) it is demonstrated that this compound class is suitable to serve as a versatile metalloligand. Deprotonation with n‐butyllithium and subsequent salt metathesis reactions yield symmetric tetranuclear gold(I) acetylide complexes of the form [{(PPh$_{3}$)AuC≡CC(NDipp)$_{2}$}$_{2}$M$_{2}$] (M=Cu, Au). The corresponding Ag complex [{(PPh$_{3}$)AuC≡CC(NDipp)$_{2}$}$_{2}$Ag$_{2}$] was obtained by a different route via metal rearrangement. All compounds show bright blue or blue‐green microsecond long phosphorescence in the solid state, hence their photophysical properties were thoroughly investigated in a temperature range of 20–295 K. Emission quantum yields of up to 41 % at room temperature were determined. Furthermore, similar emissions with quantum yields of 15 % were observed for the two most brightly luminescent complexes in thf solution.
