Along with gold and silver, platinum is one of the rarest metals on earth. Just 0.005 PPM, or parts per million, can be found on the planet. That number for silver is 0.075 and for gold 0.004. However, in terms of demand, platinum lingered behind its precious metal rivals for centuries. In fact, the world platinum itself derives from the Spanish word platina, meaning little silver.
This was a name given to it by Spanish conquistadors in the 1600s primarily interested in finding gold. However, in the late 20th century, mints noticed a shift in interest and responded accordingly. In 1988, the Perth and Royal Canadian Mints produced their first platinum products. In 1997, the United States Mint followed suit. Today, platinum is offered by nearly all of the most prestigious mints and refineries around the globe.
Each 1/10 oz Platinum Bar in this online listing at JM Bullion will arrive inside a plastic bag. Please note that these bars are in varied conditions. This means that you could receive a brand-new bar, a bar with considerable flaws, and everything in-between. However, you are guaranteed to receive a product in bar form consisting of 1/10 Troy oz of pure platinum.
The designs of 1/10 oz Platinum Bars may vary on both the obverse and the reverse side. Generally speaking, a mint will include identifying details and hallmarks on the front side of a bar. A few popular manufacturers of platinum bars today include Credit Suisse, Valcambi, Argor Heraeus, and PAMP Suisse.
