Platinum Chinese Coins

Platinum is ten times rarer than gold with the majority mined in South Africa and Russia. The China Mint has been making platinum coins in very limited quantities since 1987 when the first platinum panda coin was minted. Years following have seen platinum panda coins in one ounce and fractional sizes, a Chinese twelve coin lunar set (1988-1999) and a few others. These platinum proof coins make a unique and enticing option for collectors looking to leverage the rarest of the precious metals with a play on the Chinese coin market which continues to grow each year as more people are drawn to owning a piece of history, in all respects.
