Platinum, despite being third in popularity in the precious metals space, is a great product that offers many of the same advantages as gold and silver. Platinum typically trades at a similar price to gold, and its movements tend to correlate closely with gold, silver, and other commodities.
Platinum is typically sold in either bar or coin form, and there are far fewer platinum products and brands available versus gold or silver. That being said, we do offer a nice range of platinum options to accommodate smaller and larger investors alike. We will review our platinum bar and coin selection below.
Platinum bars are a very common form of platinum investment. These bars typically sell in smaller gram sizes, as well as 1 and 10 troy ounce sizes. The larger piece of bullion you order, the lesser premium you’ll pay over the platinum spot price, so we always advocate for investors to buy the largest bars they can afford.
Platinum coins are the other primary type of platinum bullion. Coins refer to any platinum product produced by a government mint, such as the US Mint or Royal Canadian Mint. Coins typically have an actual face value in the country’s currency, although the worth of the platinum in the coin is far more valuable than the face value.
