Platinum is the rarest of the Earth’s major precious metals, but it is also one of the most widely used precious metals. Roughly 45% of the world’s annual supply of platinum that is mined is directed toward the production of catalytic converters. Because platinum is highly unreactive and resistant to corrosion, it makes the perfect metal for catalytic converters, which are used to remove harmful chemicals in the exhaust of automobiles.
The next largest chunk of the global platinum supply each year, some 34%, is used in the jewelry industry. Other major applications include the production of chemicals and the refining of petroleum. Investment-grade bullion production uses only a portion of the 9% of platinum that is not directed toward other industrial applications, making platinum bullion bars a valuable option to buyers.
On the obverse side of 10 Gram Platinum Argor-Heraeus Bars is a depiction of the Argor logo. The logo consists of two concentric circles with the full name of the mint and the initials of the mint. Other markings on this side include the weight, purity, metal content, and assayer’s mark.
The reverse field of the 10 Gram Platinum Bars from Argor-Heraeus features a repeating design element. The design includes the central piece of the Argor logo with the initials of the mint. This element repeats across the design field at an angle.
