In the title coordination polymer, [Hg(NCS)2(C4H5N3)], the HgII atom is four-coordinated by one aromatic N atom from a 2-amino­pyrimidine ligand, one S atom from a terminal thio­cyanate ligand, and one S atom and one N atom from a bridging thio­cyanate ligand. The crystal structure features polymeric chains running along the b axis which are stabilized by N—H⋯N hydrogen bonds.
