Platinum coins, bars and rounds
Platinum is used in variety of industries but over 50% of the platinum mined each year is used in the automotive industry. Platinum is what is called an oxidizer which has the ability to add an oxygen molecule to another gas. This helps reduce emissions of harmful gases from combustion vehicles. This does not mean the greyish silver metal is going to the wayside as is gas powered vehicles. More platinum and palladium are used as catalytic material in electric vehicles than traditional gas and diesel powered cars.
Platinum, while not minted on quite the level of gold and silver, can take shape in the same type of coins, bars and rounds that the other precious metals are found in.
- Platinum Coins: Minted by governments around the world, coins such as the American Platinum Eagle, Austrian Platinum Philharmonic and the British Platinum Britannia are commonly found on Investor Crate's Fire Sale page as well as the various crates and packs we offer. Platinum also comes in some pretty unique sizes such as the 1/3 oz Australian Platinum Humpback, Platypus and Penguin coins as well as 1 gram and 30 gram Platinum Pandas by the Chinese Mint.
- Platinum Bars: Bars minted from fine platinum come from large corporations, banks and refineries. Some common platinum bar manufacturers include Scotiabank, Credit Suisse Bank, Johnson Matthey, Valcambi Suisse, PAMP SA and Argor-Hereaus.
- Platinum Rounds: Although rare and considered to be vintage at this point, the fortune 500 company Engelhard, prior to being purchased by BASF in 2006, produced a large volume of bullion, including the famous 1 oz Platinum Prospector Round.
Pre-1965 U.S. 90% silver
Back when our countries leaders followed the constitution, circulatory coins, as mandated by Article 1, Section 10, Clause 1 of the U.S. Constitution, were comprised of silver.
"No State shall enter into any Treaty, Alliance, or Confederation; grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal; coin Money; emit Bills of Credit; make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts; pass any Bill of Attainder, ex post facto Law, or Law impairing the Obligation of Contracts, or grant any Title of Nobility."
And prior to 1965 (arguably 1933 when the bankers used our politicians to ban the private ownership of gold and silver) half dollars, quarters, dimes and nickels were all made of silver. 90% silver or what use to be called "junk silver" is highly sought after for its low premiums and collectability.
