The history of the 1/10 oz Platinum American Eagle coin
1/10 oz Platinum American Eagle coins are made of a Precious Metal that has been around since at least 1200 B.C. as the metal was discovered in Egyptian tombs. The same metal for Platinum coins, though, would not come to Europe’s attention until the 1500s, when some even viewed Platinum as an impurity in Gold. The first U.S. Mint coin was not even produced until 1997. This delay in minting Platinum coins, though, has no relationship to the value today. Often today, the Platinum price is higher than the Gold price thanks to Platinum’s many uses, including investment bullion and industrial products like use in catalytic converters for cars.
