Please note: like most trading venues, we display the current mid-market rates in our price charts. When you trade, you get the current bid or ask price depending on whether you are buying or selling. There is always a slight difference between the mid-market and the current bid or ask prices. This is a natural result of how Exchange order books work.
About Platinum (XPT)
Just like gold and silver, platinum is a beautiful metal that has a wide range of uses.
It’s highly malleable, doesn’t corrode or easily react with other metals or chemicals, and has a high melting point (1,768 degrees Celsius).
That makes it perfect for jewelry making, vehicle manufacturing, implanted medical devices, and technology. Platinum is rare compared with gold and silver - with just 169 metric tonnes mined in 2016 (there was 19x more gold and 163x more silver mined that year).
No wonder then that people want to buy platinum as an investment.
