In the binuclear title compound, [Ag2(C11H11N3)2](ClO4)2·2C2H6SO, the complex cation is centrosymmetric, with the unique AgI cation coordinated by two pyridine N atoms from two symmetry-related N-(pyridine-2-ylmeth­yl)pyridine-3-amine ligands in a geometry slightly distorted from linear [N-Ag-N = 170.78 (9)°], resulting in the formation of a 16-membered cyclic dimer. The two pyridine rings coordinating to the AgI atom are almost perpendicular to each other [dihedral angle = 87.73 (10)°]. Inter­molecular Ag...O inter­actions [3.149 (3) and 2.686 (3) Å], N-H...O and C-H...O hydrogen bonds and C-H...[pi] inter­actions between the cyclic dimers and the anions or the solvent mol­ecules lead to the formation of a three-dimensional supra­molecular network.
