Sell Platinum Bars to the Best Platinum Buyer in Las Vegas & Henderson, NV
A platinum bar is a piece of refined platinum that can be cut into any form. It is considered a good choice when investing in platinum bullion. Generally, bars are favored because of their wide availability, diverse product range, and low pricing compared to the platinum spot price. Furthermore, since platinum bars are minted in large quantities, investors can find the exact size, style, and relative price of the bar they want.
Julius Caesar Scaliger, a physician from Italy and France, discovered platinum in 1557. Then, in 1950, this white metal was found in Ecuador’s rivers by Spanish conquistadors. It was eventually dubbed Platina or little silver because it was thought to be thrown back into the river to ripen into silver.
In 1912, white gold was “invented” in Pforzheim, Germany, as a substitute for platinum. This new invention’s properties attracted the attention of a Swedish chemist named Scheffer, who named platinum the seventh element discovered in 1751. He was the first to melt platinum successfully.
It’s also believed that the ancient Egyptians were the first to use this white metal in jewelry, but it was not until a century ago that it became widely recognized. Furthermore, despite extensive testing with the assistance of some South American Indians over 1000 years ago, news of new white metal with peculiar properties did not reach Europe until the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, after the Spanish conquest of the New World.
Consequently, Louis XVI of France declared platinum to be the only metal suitable for royalty because he was convinced of its special qualities. Since then, Kings, Queens, and Czars in late-nineteenth-century Europe and Russia have been adorning themselves with all types of platinum.
Then, in the early 1900s, platinum became common in the United States, enthralling the general public. However, during World War II, the government of the United States listed platinum as a strategic metal, prohibiting its use in jewelry. As a consequence, by the end of the war, platinum was nearly extinct.
Designs of Platinum Bars
Here are some of the most common designs in platinum bar collections:
PAMP Suisse produced the Fortuna Platinum Bars, which feature depictions of the goddess of fortune on the obverse. Fortuna is depicted in a left-profile bust with a cornucopia on her head, wearing a blindfold. The Horn of Plenty swirls down the obverse field toward the bottom of the design feature, where it spills coins into Fortuna’s waiting hands.
This platinum bar comes with the Valcambi’s logo appearing on its obverse along with an assayer’s stamp, weight, purity, and metal content of the bar, and in some cases, a serial number.
Credit Suisse Platinum
Credit Suisse Platinum Bars, like Valcambi bars, feature the rectangular Credit Suisse emblem with distinguishing inscriptions. A serial number can be found on some of these platinum bars.
The Argor-Heraeus logo with a stylized “AH” at the center of a circular setting with a ring with the full name mentioned around it appears on the obverse of Argor-Heraeus bars. On this side, the weight, purity, and metal content are also engraved.
