Platinum Coins for Sale
Platinum coins were first minted by the Spanish in the 1700s and later by Russia in the early 1800s. However, these coins proved to be unpopular due to the facts that their appearance resembled many less expensive metals and that platinum was very hard to work compared to more malleable metals such as gold and silver.
