The history of Canadian Platinum coins
Investors who purchase Platinum coins may know that the Platinum Maple Leaf is Canada’s official bullion Platinum coin. These Canadian coins with .9995 fine Platinum were first issued by the Royal Canadian Mint in 1988, and were available in five different denominations until 2002. The Royal Canadian Mint reintroduced Platinum coins in 2009 in a denomination of $50. The Platinum price is higher than the $50 face value of these bullion coins, which is symbolic and does not reflect the true value of the Precious Metal content, making it a valuable asset in a diversified investment portfolio.
Why invest in Platinum coins?
These Platinum coins are prized by investors around the world for their .9995 fine Platinum, a Precious Metal that is often more valuable than Gold. Platinum coins are typically priced higher per troy ounce than Gold, which you can see when you examine the Gold and Platinum price history. The Platinum price reflects its many industrial and decorative applications, making Platinum a valuable long-term asset for many investors. Many Platinum investors choose these Royal Canadian Mint coins because they believe the Platinum price will increase as emerging markets demand more of the items that contain Platinum.

Before you purchase Platinum coins, understand how a Precious Metals IRA can benefit investors.
Before you purchase Platinum coins for a Precious Metals IRA, it is important to understand how a Precious Metals IRA can benefit investors. Many Canadian coins and other products qualify for a Precious Metals IRA, which is a self-directed IRA that allows non-traditional assets such as Precious Metals to be held as the investment. Royal Canadian Mint products such as Maple Leaf Platinum coins qualify for a Precious Metals IRA, and profits from the sale of your investments can be tax deferred, like profits from any IRA, if you keep the proceeds from your sale with your custodian for reinvestment, or transfer the proceeds to another IRA account. The Platinum price can make this Precious Metal a valuable investment, and an APMEX specialist is happy to help you diversify your assets into a Precious Metals portfolio.
