The use of platinum in precious metal products has seen sharp increases and decreases in the 21st century. At the start of the century the price of platinum sunk so far that many producers and refiners exited the industry, leaving investors with little to no options for platinum bars or coins.
With rising prices and demand for platinum from other industries in the mid-2000s, platinum’s popularity increased. Brands such as Credit Suisse, PAMP Suisse, and the Royal Canadian Mint hopped back into the market for platinum products.
In the case of Credit Suisse, the best option for many investors is the 10 oz Credit Suisse Platinum Bar. The obverse face of the bar features the Credit Suisse logo at the top of its design field, and is followed by engravings of the bar’s weight, metal content, purity, and the assayer’s mark. At the bottom of the obverse is the bar’s unique serial number.
On the reverse of the bar you’ll find only the Credit Suisse logo, set at a 45-degree angle and featured in a repeating design set. Each of these bars is a minted ingot with a rectangular design and sharp angles.
Credit Suisse is a multinational financial services holding company that is headquartered in Zurich, Switzerland. It was originally founded in 1856, making it the oldest financial institution in Switzerland that got its start funding companies doing work to expand the nation’s rail and electrical systems.
