The first Australian platinum bullion coin was produced by the Perth Mint in 1988. During this period the platinum metal was not as expensive as it is in the present market. Today, the platinum one ounce coins are traded as a commodity and have been known to consistently be higher than platinum rates due to it’s rarity. The Platinum Australian Koala have 99.95% as they are produced as a globally recognized investment in the precious metal market. The Platinum Australian Koala, Platinum American Eagle and Platinum Canadian Maple Leaf have made it possible for the collectors and investors to make investment in smaller purchases and at an affordable rate.
Platinum coins and bullion have seen a tremendous increase in platinum price as it is the rarest of the four precious metals. Platinum is not only a necessity for some items to be manufactured like automobiles, but also recognized by both countries and individuals as a means to physically diversify their financial holdings. Since it is a precious metal like gold and silver the mint has created the coins in one ounce equivalent that commonly use by individuals who buy gold coins or silver bullion coins. Most platinum coin collectors do not wish to sell or trade the coins once they take possession which also increases the value of the Platinum Australian Koala.
