Alongside gold and silver, platinum and palladium make up the quartet of the most popular precious metals for investment. A significant proportion of the annual demand for these two white metals is used above all in the automotive industry but also for the manufacture of jewellery. This means that the price of both precious metals is very much dependent on the demand from industry. This can of course work in two ways: if industry requires a large quantity of these metals, the price goes up, on the other hand scandals or other reductions in demand can drag the price down with them.
While both metals are well represented in bar form, the choice in the case of coins is relatively limited compared with gold or silver. Generally minted in weights of one ounce, there are coins inter alia from Australia ( (Koala 1 ounce platinum, Emu 1 ounce palladium), the Isle of Man (Noble 1 ounce platinum), Canada (Maple Leaf 1 ounce platinum and palladium) and the USA (American Eagle 1 ounce platinum and palladium).
