With metals like gold, platinum, and palladium, it is important for investors to have options that vary beyond just 1 oz. Consider the expense of investing in a 1 oz platinum coin when the price hovers around $900 per ounce compared to a 1 oz silver coin when the price hovers around $17 per ounce. Fractional-ounce platinum coins make it easier for more investors to get involved with this metal. Today, you have the opportunity to buy random year, varied condition 1/3 oz Platinum Coins online at Provident Metals.
The Perth Mint is one of the few mints that actually produces 1/3 oz platinum coins. A 1/3 oz platinum coin is far more affordable on a per-ounce basis than a 1 oz platinum coin. The Perth Mint issued its first-ever 1/3 oz Platinum Coin in 2018 with the release of a collectible wildlife series that featured the Emperor Penguin. Subsequent designs from the mint in this weight continued to focus on marine wildlife with a Humpback Whale and Bottlenose Dolphin release.
As mentioned above, there are not many 1/3 oz Platinum Coins out there you could expect to see, but that doesnt mean there is a lack of diversity in those collections. The Perth Mint collection mentioned above features one of two effigies of Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse. The first issue of the series has the fifth-generation bust of the Queen wearing the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara that was on Australian coins from 1999 to 2018/2019. Subsequent date marks in this range have the sixth-generation effigy of the Queen from Jody Clark. This bust shows the Queen at age 89 with the George IV State Diadem Crown.
For the reverse field, these particular 1/3 oz Platinum Coins have changing designs from one date mark to the next and even within the same issue year. For example, the 2019 dates in this particular collection featured a Humpback Whale mother with its young calf underwater, as well as another design with Bottlenose Dolphins in the water.
Most platinum bullion coins were issued initially in the 1980s and 1990s. For example, the Royal Canadian Mint and Perth Mint issued platinum coins for the first time in 1988 and 1987, respectively. The United States Mint unveiled its Platinum Eagle in 1997. More recent introductions include the Somalia Elephant and Austrian Philharmonic in 2016, as well as the British Britannia in 2018. None of these coins, however, offer a 1/3 oz Platinum option.
These 1/3 oz Platinum Coins ship in protective flips or mint packaging if the latter is available. Coins will come from random years with varied conditions.
