In the mononuclear title complex, [CuI(C6H8N2S)(C18H15P)2], the CuI ion is in a slightly distorted tetra­hedral coordination geometry formed by two P atoms from two triphenyl­phosphane ligands, one S atom from a 4,6-dimethyl­pyrimidine-2(1H)-thione ligand and one iodide ion. There is an intra­molecular N—H⋯I hydrogen bond. In the crystal, π–π stacking inter­actions [centroid–centroid distance = 3.594 (1) Å] are observed.
