Platinum Price FAQs

When looking at the Platinum price chart, you will discover an ounce is not a "regular" ounce. Typically, when Americans refer to ounces, they are referring to avoirdupois ounces. The Platinum spot price is calculated in troy ounces, which are equal to 1.09711 avoirdupois ounces. One troy ounce equals 31.1035 grams.

Platinum is traded at the same price per ounce, in U.S. dollars, no matter where in the world. While Platinum is traded in U.S. dollars, the price can easily be converted to local currencies.

The bid Platinum price per ounce today is the highest current market offer to sell to a dealer. Consumers can expect to receive the bid price when selling Platinum to a dealer.

Many investors see Precious Metals as a way to balance their portfolio because they hold value when other investments falter, resulting in investors considering Precious Metals as safe-haven investments. As always, you should decide what investments make the most sense for your goals.

The Ask Platinum price per ounce is the current minimum price for a dealer to sell in the market. Dealers will offer to sell Platinum to you for the ask price.

Many investors make the most of their Platinum value by investing in a Precious Metals IRA, which is a Self-Directed IRA. Any profits on your Platinum investment can be tax deferred as long as the proceeds are kept with your reinvestment custodian or transferred to another IRA account, just like with regular IRAs.

The Spread is the difference between the Ask price and the Bid price. This spread is also referred to as the bid-ask spread and represents the dealer’s profit. The dealer pays you the Ask price when you resell Platinum, while you will pay the Bid price when you buy from the dealer.

Interested in selling your Platinum? APMEX offers you an easy and fast way to sell your Platinum bars or Platinum coins online. Learn how to sell your Platinum today.

First, decide what kind of Platinum you’re interested in buying. There are several types of Platinum, ranging from scrap to bullion products. Second, determine the form in which you’d like to buy. If you’re buying Platinum bullion, choose between Platinum coins, bars and rounds (they look like coins but carry no face value and are not backed by a sovereign government as currency).

Next, do your research and identify a reputable seller. For example, The United States Mint does not sell directly to the public but offers a list of Authorized Purchasers. APMEX has been on that shortlist since 2014 and is in such good company as Deutsche Bank, Scotia Bank and Fidelitrade, to name a few.

Finally, prepare for how you will securely protect and store your Platinum. There are many factors and options for this. For a small fee, you can store it with a trusted third party such as Citadel (a service offered by APMEX). Of course, many choose to store their Platinumin their own vaults or lockboxes at home, as well.

A troy ounce of Platinum is equal to 31.10 grams. It’s a unit of measure first used in the Middle Ages, originating in Troyes, France. You may notice that this is slightly heavier than the 28.35 grams we’ve come to expect from the standard ounce (also known as the avoirdupois ounce). Troy weight units are primarily used in the Precious Metals industry.

The worth of Platinum is determined by the current spot price. This price is determined by many factors such as market conditions, supply and demand, and even news of political and social events. The value or worth of a Platinum product is calculated relative to the weight of its pure metal content and is measured in troy ounces. However, collectible or rare Platinum products may carry a much higher premium over and above the value found in its raw metal weight.

Additionally, other factors such as merchandising, packaging or certified grading from a trusted third-party may influence the final worth of the Platinum product you are purchasing.

The price of Platinum can fluctuate based on market conditions, supply and demand, geopolitical events and more.
