Platinum Coins

Platinum, a common but scarce resource, is used in a wide range of applications within the automotive, jewelry, dental, medical, chemical, electrical and glass manufacturing industries. With limited mining options and a dwindling above-ground stockpile, the supply of platinum needed is often larger than the available supply. In past years, these changes in its supply and demand dynamics resulted in fluctuations in the price of platinum and attracted traders seeking opportunity in the platinum market's volatility.

Coveted for its beauty and rarity, platinum continues to offer similar financial benefits to its more popular precious metals and remains a viable option for today’s investors.

With billions of dollars in transaction volume and consistently competitive prices, Monex remains a preferred source for physical platinum investments. Contact one of our Account Representatives today and discover how to incorporate platinum coins into your personal investment program.

Monex account representatives are available between 5:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Pacific time each Monday through Friday (except national holidays) and on many weekends.

Platinum Bullion

Although a rare precious metal, platinum plays a pivotal role in multiple industries around the world. Industries often substitute platinum bullion for palladium bullion, and vice versa, creating fluctuating demand. These market shifts, in turn, create optimal times for both buying and liquidating physical platinum investments.

Monex proudly offers 10 ounce and 50 ounce bars made of pure .9995 fine platinum. Both platinum investments may be purchased for personal delivery or third-party depository storage. Each bar we offer is produced by a leader in the precious metals refining industry and is hallmarked to certify weight and purity.

What platinum products does Monex offer to investors?

Monex offers the most popular ways to own platinum including pure platinum bullion bars and government-minted bullion coins. Pure 10-ounce .9995 fine platinum bullion bars are ten ounce ingots, which are stamped with the refiner’s hallmark, exact weight and fineness, and serial number. Monex also offers legal tender, pure platinum bullion coins, including one ounce Platinum American Eagles produced by the U.S. Mint and Platinum Canadian Maple Leaf coins produced by the Royal Canadian Mint.

What is the process of investing in platinum with Monex?

Once you have decided on the quantity of platinum bars or coins to purchase, your Monex account representative will assist you in executing your order over the phone, and your purchase and price will be confirmed on a recorded line after your acknowledgment. A written confirmation will be sent to you with the details of your order.

Payment must be initiated on the day of purchase, which means you must mail or wire funds on the day of your purchase. Upon payment verification, you have the power to decide if you want your physical metal shipped directly to your home, made available for pick-up at secure depository facilities located throughout the U.S., or have your metal delivered to a bank/depository for storage.

What is the minimum amount of platinum I can buy from Monex?

The minimum purchase amount for platinum bullion bars at Monex is 10 troy ounces. For one ounce legal tender platinum bullion coins, such as the Platinum American Eagle and Platinum Canadian Maple Leaf, the minimum purchase is one unit, containing 10 one ounce pure platinum coins.

What forms of payment does Monex accept?

For purchasing platinum bars and coins, Monex accepts the following forms of payment:

  • Domestic Bank Wires: Funds acceptable upon receipt.
  • Foreign Bank Wires of U.S. Funds: Acceptable upon bank verification.
  • Bank Cashier's checks and Personal Checks: Accepted with a 5 - 10 day hold period and bank verification.
  • Cash, credit cards, convenience checks, payment in foreign currency, ACH forms of payment, checks drawn on foreign banks, or cryptocurrencies are not accepted.
How long does it take to receive my platinum?

Almost every investment in physical metal is unique. For this reason, calculating shipping timing for a unique platinum product has no single universal answer. Delivery of your precious metals investment is dependent on a large variety of factors including the quantity of metals, when your purchase is made, and more.

On average, physical metal will leave the shipping facility two to five days following confirmed reliable good funds. Once Monex has received payment and the funds are confirmed and considered reliable good funds, Monex will direct one of its independent shipping facilities to package and assign it to either USPS or UPS for delivery to you. You will then receive email or telephone notification of your shipment's tracking number.

During times when the shipping volume is extremely high, you will be notified if any delays are expected. Call a Monex account representative to learn more about estimated shipping times for your unique investment.

How does the platinum sell-back process work?

Selling your platinum bullion bars or coin investment back to Monex is a relatively easy process. When you are ready to sell your platinum, simply contact your Monex account representative for shipping instructions. Shipments must then be sent by USPS registered and insured mail with a return receipt. Customers are responsible for fully insuring shipments, until received by Monex. Once the shipment is received and verified you will be notified. Proceeds of the sale will be sent to you in the form of a check or bank wire, or if you prefer, credited to your account. If your palladium is in storage at one of the banks/depositories, you can sell your metal over the phone at any time without delay. The transfer of title from you to Monex will follow your sale, and the bank/depository will notify you by mail that the transfer of title has occurred.

How do I know the platinum products I get from Monex are authentic?

Monex guarantees the authenticity and fineness of all of its bullion bars and coins. All platinum bullion bars are imprinted with the refiner’s name, exact weight and fineness. All platinum coins are produced by government mints. Platinum coins have an extraordinary benefit in that platinum is more dense than gold and by making a precise size measurement by digital caliper and using a precise digital scale for weight, one can verify the commodity’s special advantage of being the heaviest of the precious metals.

Does the face value of a platinum coin affect its worth?

The face value of a platinum coin is low in regards to its intrinsic commodity melt value. Therefore, the face value is relatively unimportant and really does not affect its worth. However, having any government currency value is hugely important because that makes it a government guaranteed legal-tender coin and not an unsupported bullion ingot/round. If a government mint were to issue platinum coins with face value exceeding its commodity value, it would affect its worth.

Can I store my platinum investment through Monex?

Monex can arrange for the secure storage of your platinum bullion or coin investments. Monex will deliver your platinum with full title and ownership in your name to one of the independent bank/depository facilities that provide storage for Monex customers. When your metal is received by the bank/depository, the custodian of the facility will send you a document acknowledging the receipt and ownership of the platinum being stored in your name.

Should I buy platinum or gold?

Buy gold. Then, when you feel you have enough gold, and you want to add some diversification benefits of a blended precious metals position, buy platinum.
