Investing in Platinum Coins
Platinum coins have become and increasingly popular option for investors looking to buy platinum. Since 2016 a number of government mints have launched platinum coins, including the platinum Kangaroo, platinum Krugerrand, platinum Philharmonic and platinum Britannia. Investors have increasingly started to consider platinum and palladium as relevant options for a precious metal investment portfolio. Platinum prices do not correlate to the gold prices, however they do offer security during times of crisis and economic uncertainty, just like gold. Platinum coins are available individually, or in wholesale tubes and monster boxes.
Why Buy 2020 Uncirculated Platinum Coins?
Both current year and backyear platinum coins are available for investment. Generally, backyear platinum coins sell for a slightly reduced premium to the new 2020 issue platinum coins. However, there are a number of benefits to buying new coins over uncirculated coins.
New platinum coins are issued directly from the mint, and are never purchased from the secondary market. As a result, they are also in much better condition, guaranteed not to have any marks or scratches on them, as they are uncirculated.
Government mints also keep making improvements to the design of their coins. For example, additional security features have been added to newer edition coins, such as the laser inscribed maple leaf on the Canadian Platinum Maple Leaf coin. The purity of some coins has also been improved. For example, the Maple Leaf was originally introduced as a 9995 platinum coin, however today current versions are made as a 9999 fine platinum coin. By buying new and uncirculated 2020 coins, investors can guarnatee that they have the most current, high quality product available.
