Perth Mint Platinum Coins

The Perth Mint is regarded as the oldest consistently operating mint in the world. The Mint has been making platinum collectable coins in Western Australia ever since its birth in 1899. The Perth Mint began minting proof coins again when it re-opened to add value to Australia's precious metals in 1986. The Perth Mint is now a regular winner of awards for marketing and design excellence.

Is There A Market for Platinum Coins?

There is a large market for platinum proof coins with collectors right around the world. Platinum is preferred by many collectors over gold for a range of reasons - platinum is harder and has a higher specific gravity than gold and is 30 times rarer than gold and exponentially rarer than silver. Market prices for platinum bullion can vary much wider than gold and silver bullion does.
