Here we have a metal that is used extensively in the laboratory, in jewelry, wire, dentistry, in corrosion-resistant apparatus, and so on. One of its most common uses is in the automobile industry as a catalytic converter. Platinum is a beautiful metal with a shiny luster which, when pure, is ductile and malleable (just as Gold and Silver are).
The history of Platinum in terms of value has fluctuated more than gold, but there have been moments when it was considered more valuable than gold. This kind of history gives Platinum a very positive twist.
It’s a metal to think about, particularly at present, when looking into investing in bullion. This is a metal that is even rarer than Silver and Gold, which is always a good thing to hear for investors. Because those who are in possession of rarity are in possession of value.
