How to Buy Platinum & Investing in Platinum
Buying Platinum Bullion and Secure Storage
Some companies most notably Goldmoney will buy bullion on behalf of clients and then arrange safe storage in London or Switzerland. The user simply opens an account online which they can fund from anywhere in the world and then purchase Platinum Bullion. The commission is relatively very low and the only other charge is a small annual storage fee. Goldmoney is independently audited which means that someone comes and checks that they have the gold they say they have!!. All metals are insured by Lloyds of London.
Buying Platinum Coins
Many national mints will issue platinum coins in ounces or smaller denominations down to 1/10th ounce. Visit the Precious Metals Calculator for a complete list of the different coins. One thing to be aware of is that many platinum coins are sold graded and have a collectors premium depending on the year issued so prices will vary.
