Investing in Platinum Bullion & Platinum Coins Dallas TX
If you don’t have platinum coins as part of your investment portfolio, you may want to reconsider. Platinum coins have not been produced as readily as silver and gold coins have. Yet, the platinum bullion coins available come from the most prestigious mints in the world. Platinum Eagles are produced by the U.S. Mint, Platinum Maple Leafs by Canada’s Royal Canadian Mint, and Platinum Koalas by Australia’s Perth Mint. As a Dallas certified coin dealer, we have access to many types of investment grade platinum coins. We can assist you with your purchases or if you have coins to sell, we can pay you top dollar.
In the late 1990s, platinum was trading close to the price of gold which created a strong interest in the noble metal. In 1997, the U.S. Mint added Platinum Eagles to complement its Gold Eagles and Silver Eagles. Platinum Eagles were well received, and in 1998, the first full year of production, 133,000 of the 1-oz Platinum Eagles were minted.
Investing in platinum coins and bullion is easy, even easier these days with companies offering their selection of coins on the internet. The most popular type of platinum coins are the government issue 1 oz coins, namely the US Mint Platinum American Eagle, Canadian Platinum Maple and Australian Platinum Koala.
While the 1 oz coin is the standard, the American Eagle, for example, is available in a number of sizes: 1-oz, half ounce, quarter ounce, and 1/10 ounce. Prices are in direct relation to the metal content, so a 1/10 ounce platinum American Eagle will sell for 1/10 the price of an ounce of platinum. The Australian Koala platinum coins go all the way down to 1/20 of an ounce, and all the way up to 10 ounces. There is even a 1kg platinum coin which was produced with an original face value of $10,000, but was later changed to $3000 in future mintings.
