Why People Buy Platinum
Platinum is a remarkable metal and is one of our most important categories. It is considered one of the earths rarest elements with the majority of it mined in South Africa. The platinum market is small compared to gold`s market with only a few hundred tons pulled from the ground each year. Platinum usually trades in the same range as gold but in recent years has been much higher. The most popular way to buy platinum is in coins or bars. Most platinum bars and platinum coins are Precious Metals IRA approved.
- Platinum Coins: If you want to buy platinum coins we recommend the American Platinum Eagle, Canadian Platinum Maple Leaf, Austrian Platinum Philharmonic or platinum coins minted by the Australian Mint. These coins are all minted with a date, weight and purity. These platinum coins are considered world class assets and are easy to liquidate. Because these platinum coins have a reference to currency they are considered legal tender but don’t be fooled the real value is the platinum content.
- Platinum Bars: We highly recommend Platinum bars produced by Baird & Co. Ltd, Valcambi Suisse, Credit Suisse, Pamp Suisse, and Johnson Matthey. The 1 oz platinum bar and the 10 oz platinum bar are most common. Each bar is delivered in original mint tamper resistant packaging. The bars include an assay card and certificate of authenticity from the mint. The weigh, purity, content, minter hallmark, and matching serial number are also included
- Platinum in your IRA: Many of the platinum products we carry are eligible to be held in a Precious Metals IRA. When you decide it’s time to look at this program we encourage you to consider platinum. If you have any questions about our platinum products or the Precious Metals IRA please call us at 888-928-3390
