Some Types of Platinum Bullion
American Eagle Platinum Coin wikipedia link
The American Platinum Eagle coin, initially minted in 1997, is the first and only official investment-grade platinum coin from the U.S. Mint. All American Eagles are legal tender coins with their “face value” imprinted in U.S. dollars but the one-ounce Platinum Eagle coin displays the highest face value ever to appear on a U.S. coin — $100 dollars. This coin is extremely popular with investors and collectors who find the coin’s beauty and the purity guarantee of the U.S. Mint irresistible. The obverse depicts the head of America’s symbol of freedom, the Statue of Liberty and the reverse shows an American Eagle soaring high above the earth.
Australian Koala Platinum Coins wikipedia link
Platinum’s brilliant white luster has been treasured by kings and queens for over 3,000 years. As the rarest precious metal, platinum, becomes even harder to source, the coins in the 2001 Australian Koala platinum series are eagerly sought by collectors and investors alike. Australia’s unique wildlife is renowned the world over. The latest design shows two hungry koalas on a eucalyptus branch, superimposed over a map of Australia. The Perth Mint pays scrupulous attention to detail at each stage of the exacting minting process. The A$10,000 face value of the 1992 1 kilo Platinum Koala is the highest face value on any legal tender coin. The face value changed in 1993 to A$3,000.
