When it comes to investing in precious metals, most investors and collectors look for silver and gold products.

The world’s top refineries have taken notice, producing platinum bars and rounds to meet the demand among numismatics. Right now, the 10 oz PAMP Suisse Fortuna Platinum Bar is available from JM Bullion.
- Contains 10 oz of .9995 pure platinum.
- Ships with Assay certificate, guaranteeing authenticity and purity.
- Classic Fortuna design on the obverse.
- Iconic PAMP Suisse logo on the reverse.
- Eligible for use in Precious Metal IRAs.
Platinum is one of the rarest precious metals in the Earth’s crust. Roughly 80% of worldwide production comes from South Africa. A limited amount of platinum is mined and refined on a yearly basis because of the metal’s rarity, and its many uses in modern society. You’ll find platinum in a range of products, from catalytic converters and electrical contacts to dental equipment and jewelry.
On the obverse side of the 10 oz PAMP Suisse Fortuna Platinum Bar is the image of the Roman goddess herself. Known as the goddess of fortune, Fortuna is often featured wearing a blindfold. In the PAMP Suisse design, Fortuna is blindfolded and wearing a cornucopia atop her head. Her clutched hands at the bottom of the design catch the bounty of riches flowing forth from the cornucopia.
The reverse design of the bar features the well-known corporate logo for PAMP Suisse. In the image, a series of interlocking circles include the letters “P.A.M.P.,” and the word “Suisse” is engraved below. Additional inscriptions on this side include the weight, metal content, and purity of the bar, as well as the individual serial number and assayer’s mark for verification of the bar’s authenticity.
PAMP Suisse was founded in Ticino, Switzerland in 1977. It has quickly risen to become the world’s leading bullion brand, producing some of the finest gold, silver, and platinum products on the market today. In the 21st century, the refinery was purchased by the MKS Group, a leading financial services and precious metals firm in the global market.
