Platinum has an interesting history, one that far outdates Bitcoin and modern banking.
Even as the Spaniards found mother lodes of gold and silver, in what is today known as Colombia, they ignored the pestilent white nuggets mixed in with the gold. “Platina” they called it, a dimunitive of the Spanish word plata, meaning silver. They experimented with ways to get rid of it, thinking it was merely “unripe gold.”
Broadly put, platinum is a soft, dense, ductile metal, and is also very resistant to corrosion. Platinum is found today in high-end jewelry, exotic forms of write, electrical contacts and nonreactive laboratory vessels. In China, generally speaking, platinum is considered the creme-de-la-creme for China, thus spurring demand.
Platinum is also important for diverse industrial applications, such as chemicals, plastics, oil refining, pollution control and more. In the future, many anticipate new uses for platinum in the fields of medical technology, exotic alloys, as well as other forms o technology and nanotechnology. Therefore, platinum has demand pressure from three economic areas: industry, jewelry, and bullion investment.
Also, putting pressure on the future supply of this rare precious metal, is that the global supply of platinum is swiftly dwindling. First off, it is expensive to mine, separate and refine. In South Africa, one of the keystone producers of platinum on the globe, economic strife is leading to strikes at platinum mines and refineries.
