Born in Guachené, Mina was a Deportivo Pasto youth graduate, joining the side only at the age of 18. Promoted to the main squad during the 2013 season, he made his senior debut on 20 March of that year by starting in a 0?1 away loss against Dépor FC in the year's Copa Colombia.
Mina made his Categoría Primera A debut on 15 September 2013, starting in a 0?0 draw at Deportivo Cali. His first professional goal occurred on 18 October, as he scored his team's first in a 2?2 home draw against Atlético Huila.
Independiente Santa Fe
On 14 December 2013, Mina moved to fellow top tier club Independiente Santa Fe, initially on a one-year loan deal. He made his debut for the club the following 25 January, playing the full 90 minutes in a 3?0 home win against Rionegro FC.
Mina immediately became a regular starter for the side, winning the 2015 Superliga Colombiana by netting the first goal in the 2?0 win against Atlético Nacional in the second leg of the Finals.
On 1 May 2016, Mina was confirmed as the new player of Palmeiras, but only joined the club in the following month. He signed a five-year contract with the club eleven days later.
Mina made his debut for the club on 4 July 2016, playing a full game in a 3?1 away defeat of Sport Recife. His first goal for the Verd?o arrived in the following fixture, a 1?1 draw against Santos. He was however substituted off just before the end of the first half due to an apparent injury which had left the defender in tears as he exited the field on a stretcher. On 13 July it was confirmed that Mina would not recover in time for the 2016 Summer Olympics, with the expectancy of the injury estimated to be 6?8 weeks.
Mina fully recovered from injury in late August 2016, being an undisputed starter during the latter stages of the season. In September, he scored goals against rivals S?o Paulo and Corinthians, and finished the year with four league goals as his team lifted the trophy after a 22-year absence.
On 11 January 2018, Barcelona and Palmeiras reached an agreement for the transfer of Yerry Mina for the remainder of the season and five more until 30 June 2023. This made him the first ever Colombian to play for the club. The cost of the transfer was ?11.8 million and his release clause was set at ?100 million.
Yerry Mina's father and uncle were both professional football goalkeepers. His father advised him to play another position and his uncle took him to Deportivo Pasto's trial.
His uncle, Jair Mina, is also his agent.
