Nickel is not a precious metal, but it does have incredible value that investors could turn to as a means of diversification in a portfolio. With gold, silver, platinum, and palladium already popular, and other precious metals like ruthenium gaining momentum, there is a growing demand for other types of metals. Right now, you can buy 1 oz Nickel Square Bars from Luciteria Science online at Provident Metals.
Nickel is a transition metal that is hard and ductile, which is part of the reason that it is combined with iron in steelmaking. Some 68% of the worlds supply of nickel mined each year goes to the production of stainless steel. Nickel is primarily used in metallic alloys, with copper-based alloys taking up 10% of the annual supply and 9% of the supply used in nickel-plating. One of the biggest emerging uses for nickel is in the production of batteries for electrical vehicles. This helps explain why nickel on its own is 20 times more expensive than iron, its chief alloying partner.
On the obverse of the 1 oz Nickel Square Bar are several identifying hallmarks. At the top of the square bar are the abbreviation and Atomic number for nickel. These markings include Ni, 28, and Nickel. The other markings on this face of the bar include One Ounce, 99.5%, and Pure. The Luciteria Science logo is also found on this side of the bar. The reverse side of the bar has only the serial number marked. These square bars will arrive with individual plastic capsules.
