The History of the 1 oz Platinum Bar

Platinum, like in today’s 1 oz Platinum bars, was first used by the indigenous of South America 1,000 years ago as jewelry and then later brought to Europe during the Spanish conquest in the 15th and 16th centuries. Worldwide interest in Platinum bullion investing was sparked by the Arab Oil Embargo in 1975, which sent Precious Metals soaring. Japan was the first to introduce Platinum bars that were small and accessible to individual investors. Platinum did not become a widespread Precious Metals investing option until the 1980s, when Canada and Australia introduced Platinum coins. A1 oz Platinum bar allows investors to easily acquire and store fine Platinum.

Why Invest in a 1 oz Platinum Bar?

Platinum is a dense, precious gray-white metal sought out by investors in 1 oz Platinum bars, coins or rounds due to its rarity and investment value. This metal, found in Platinum bullion and coins, is the least reactive metal and is resistant to corrosion, even at high temperatures, making it ideal for use in a number of industrial products. Limited supply and multiple industrial uses create demand, an ideal situation in Precious Metals investing. When you buy Platinum bars containing .9995 fine Platinum, you are buying what many consider the most precious of all the Precious Metals.

Just how rare is that 1 oz Platinum bar you want to buy?

Precious Metals investing is fueled by supply and demand. Platinum bullion is an ideal Precious Metal because Platinum has always been in limited supply and there is a demand beyond investment and jewelry production. Platinum, as found in the 1 oz Platinum bar, coin and round selections available at APMEX, is mined in South Africa and Russia, with experts saying Platinum is 15-20 times scarcer than Gold. Investors tend to buy Platinum bars when the Platinum price dips below Gold because typically Platinum prices run higher than Gold prices.

Nice bar

By  Mr. Vanploegn

from Montucky

5.0

Of course it's a small gamble since you don't know what brand you'll get, but its still a bar of platinum. Shiny and looks brand new, but why shouldn't it?

Pros

  • Value (low premium over spot)
  • Easy to Sell

Cons

  • Generic Brand

Product Review

By  Wolf

from Columbus, Oh

4.0

I bought the product because of price and the ease of buying on line without any sale pressure. The box used to hold the product is unimpressive and I anticipated the product to be of display quality which it was not impressive to say the very least. For the next purchase I intend to purchase the metal in stamp coin over that of a solid bar.

Pros

  • Mint Condition
  • Value (low premium over spot)

Cons

  • Generic Brand
  • Unattractive Design

Greta investment play

For pure investment holding minimum cost over spot is key. Paying an extra $35 for an Assay is a waste if you plan to accumulate over $10K in value before you sell. On the other hand if you plan to trade in very small quantities it is easier to sell with the Assay.

Pros

  • Value (low premium over spot)
  • Easy to Sell

Low transaction cost

Having the Assay would be nice. However, as a pure investment element, low price above spot is by far the most important factor. Bought 3 of these. They came from 3 different mints. However, after I sell them later all of the profit will go into one pocket - mine. Why pay $50 over spot to make things look pretty? At the end of the day minimizing transaction costs when you can only afford buying small quantities is the rational approach.

Pros

  • Value (low premium over spot)

Very Nice

I wasn't too keen about buying from the secondary market, but with the way things are going I wanted more bang for my buck. The ounces I received were like....awesome. I can totally see why Japan in buying them in droves. Im really happy with these, defiently an investement for one's future heirs.

Pros

  • Value (low premium over spot)
  • Mint Condition
  • Easy to Sell

Great value over other websites

Pros

Platinum bars are produced by a limited number of manufacturers.

Producers of the 1 oz Platinum bar are quite limited when compared with the number of manufacturers of Gold and Silver bars. The physical Platinum bullion market is smaller than for physical Gold and Silver, so only the top companies produce this rare Precious Metal. In Precious Metals investing, some of the top producers of Platinum bars are PAMP Suisse, Credit Suisse, Valcambi and Johnson Matthey. When you buy Platinum bars, be assured that all manufacturers featured on APMEX have a worldwide reputation for quality.
