In the title complex, [Co(CN)(2)(C(18)H(18)N(4))]PF(6), the Co(III) atom together with one of the pyridyl rings and two cyanide anions are located on a mirror plane, while the P atom is located on an inversion centre. The Co(III) atom exhibits an octa-hedral geometry, coordinated by four N atoms from the tris-(2-pyridyl-meth-yl)amine ligand with an average Co-N distance of 1.953 (2) Å, and two cyanide C atoms with an average Co-C distance of 1.895 (2) Å. The crystal packing is stabilized by inter-molecular C-H⋯N and C-H⋯F inter-actions.
