Treasured by native South Americans for thousands of years, platinum remained a virtual secret to the rest of the world until it was discovered by Spaniards in the mid-sixteenth century.
Yet it was not until the 1800s that platinum was put into wide use. In the years since, the precious metal has emerged as a highly valued asset — one you can hold in your hand, trade in an emergency, and store and transfer on your terms.
Provident Metals carries a variety of platinum products, including Baird & Co. Platinum Bullion Bars, each composed of 1 troy ounce of .9995 fine platinum. Card design may vary.
The obverse of each lustrous bar is stamped with its weight and purity, along with the words "BAIRD & CO. BULLION MERCHANTS LONDON." The reverse is inscribed with the company’s website. Each 1 oz Platinum Bar comes in an original assay card, and is marked with a unique serial number for added protection.
Established in 1967, Baird & Co. manufactures some of the most trusted bullion products on the international market. In fewer than fifty years in operation, the company has quickly grown to be one of the world’s leading bullion refineries. Using state-of-the-art engineering techniques, the company operates a 30,000 square foot facility located just outside of London.
