In the cobaltocenium group of the title compound, [AuCo(C5H5)(C17H14P)Cl]PF6, the substituted cyclo­penta­dienyl (Cps) and the unsubstituted cyclo­penta­dienyl (Cp) ring planes are almost parallel, making a dihedral angle of 3.1 (3)°. The C atoms in Cp and Cps are in an eclipsed conformation. The AuI atom is coordinated by a P atom from the diphenyl­phosphanyl group and a Cl atom in an almost linear arrangement [P—Au—Cl = 178.15–(7)°]. Two hexa­fluorido­phosphate anions are each located on a twofold rotation axis. In the crystal, the complex cations and hexa­fluorido­phosphate anions are linked via inter­molecular C—H⋯F hydrogen bonds.
