As with other precious metals, there are various options for investors buying platinum bullion.

Among the most common precious metals issued by sovereign and private mints, platinum is the rarest in the Earth’s crust. When the known deposits of gold, silver, and platinum accessible to miners are compared, platinum is by far the rarest. Available platinum sources hold 1/10th the amount of available gold and 1/100th the amount of available silver.
Platinum’s rarity, when combined with its broad range of industrial uses, makes it a valuable metal to investors as well. Platinum is heavily used in the production of catalytic converters for internal-combustion engines in automobiles. Minted ingots remain the most common and popular form of platinum bullion.
The obverse side of 1 Gram Platinum Argor-Heraeus Bars depicts the markings of weight, metal content, and purity for the bars. The metal content of the minted ingots is marked twice, with the word “Platinum” and the Atomic symbol for the metal, “Pt,” also featured on this side of the bar. Included with these markings is an assayer’s mark.
On the reverse face of the 1 Gram Platinum Bar from Argor-Heraeus is the Swiss refiner’s logo. The image of the Argor logo is simplified for use on these diminutive bars and includes only the circular element with the stylized “AH” initials within the circle.
These 1 Gram Platinum Argor-Heraeus Bars are available to you for purchase today with secure packaging. Each bar is individually housed inside of a tamper-evident blistercard from Argor-Heraeus. The blistercard comes with a green assay card as well that authenticates the weight, metal content, and purity of the platinum bars.
1 Gram Platinum Bars from Argor-Heraeus come in brand-new condition from the mint and are part of the Classic Series of minted ingots from Argor. Unlike the other weights in this series, these minted ingots are in the shape of squares instead of rectangles.
