But that’s not all. The real reason behind Platinum being the most valuable of Precious Metals is because it has so many necessary industrial applications. For example, catalytic converters in our cars require Platinum, making the automotive industry the largest Platinum consumer. Experts estimate that 20 percent of everything we use either contains Platinum or requires Platinum in its production. Platinum is fast becoming a true necessity, making it an excellent long-term investment.
Why Buy Platinum Bars?For the established Precious Metals investor, there is no better time to branch into Platinum investing. Platinum has long-been referred to as “rich man’s Gold” because it has historically traded at a higher price. Only the wealthiest investors ventured into Platinum. Recently, due to upsets in the mining and automotive industries, the price of Platinum has fallen below that of Gold. While this is not unprecedented, it is rare. Now is truly the time to get on board with Platinum.
Whether your interest lies with Platinum bars or Platinum coins, there are remarkable values available now. APMEX currently stocks a 1 oz Platinum Bar by Valcambi, offering the caché of a historic Swiss refiner and the security of being packaged in assay. For investors preferring coin presentations, the 2015 Canada 1 oz Platinum Maple Leaf is a true must-see. The coin is beautiful and features an iconic design. The Platinum Maple Leaf would make an outstanding first foray into Platinum. This moment in Platinum extends to smaller investors, too. Those who would like a piece of Platinum but wrote it off as prohibitively expensive may be pleasantly surprised at the exceptional values available, such as the stunning 1/2 oz PAMP Suisse Platinum bar. Besides the lower price point that may appeal to a new Platinum investor, the 1/2 oz PAMP Suisse Platinum bar comes in assay, which lends an extra piece of mind for newcomers to the Platinum market.
