    The virus threads have an unmanageable amount of posts being reported.
    I'd rather not lock threads if it can be helped.
    The situation is affecting people in different ways.
    As always, discussion and opinions are fine but if there is ever a time that we should be careful and respectful to each other about what we post it is now.
    Maybe pause for a moment before clicking 'submit reply'.

    Occasionally may happen, very occasional and for an extremely brief period. This is due to how the data is called, and the amount of calls at once, this will be resolved when we change the spot bar to have multiple currencies as it will be using a slightly different API that can handle any size traffic.

    In future, if you have any technical issues please either direct them to me in a private message, or in the correct sub forum here: https://thesilverforum.com/forum/85-forum-support-reporting-errors/ rather than posting in another topic elsewhere on the forum. 

    Spot bar looks to be working perfectly here. If you are still experiencing an error in a few minutes, please send me a private message so that I can look into it for you.

    ChrisSilver reacted to Serendipity in Fractional Platinum Coins   
    One of the major reasons why I feel there’s not much fractional platinum around is the fact that platinum is not just rarer than gold but also tougher for the mints to work on. Platinum is comparable to titanium in hardness which probably makes it cost-prohibitive to churn out regular fractional platinum pieces. Fractional coins are also much more costlier in the long run to produce and buy than 1oz coins despite their popularity with stackers/collectors.

    tl;dr The American Platinum Eagle, Canadian Platinum Maple, English Platinum Britannia, Chinese Platinum Panda, Austrian Platinum Philharmonic, Australian Platinum Koala, and Isle of Man Platinum Noble were all produced in fractional sizes at one time or another and are attainable in one size or another.  Most fractionals have been discontinued, but can still be found through dealers through either individual sales or in random coin offers. The dealer with the most fractional platinum offerings is  APMEX.
    ------------------------
    Although 1oz definitely is the most common, many coins do come in, or have been released in, fractional sizes. 
    The American Platinum Eagle was originally released in 1oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4oz and 1/10 oz denominations, though all but the 1oz were discontinued in 2009. Some fractional sizes can still be found through dealer offers though. JM bullion for example still has the 1/2 oz listed individually as a random year option.
    The Canadian Platinum Maple is similar to the APE as it was originally released in 4 fractional sizes (1/2oz, 1/4oz, and 1/10oz, 1/20oz)  All RCM Platinum maples  were discontinued in 2002, but in 2009 they started producing the 1oz maple again and that is all that is offered today. JM bullion still shows a picture of the maple in their random 1/10oz coin offering advertisement (along with the APE).  
    Platinum Britannias are still produced annually in fractional sizes (1/2oz, 1/4oz, and 1/10oz).  They are usually the most prevalent fractional platinum coin available for purchase. JM Bullion only offers them in 1oz and 1/10oz but APMEX has all sizes in 2020 mintage.
    The Platinum Panda was produced until 2005 (1oz, 1/2oz, 1/4oz, 1/10oz, 1/20oz). There is a 2002 1/10oz Panda available on APMEX right now but they are quite rare and hold more of a numismatic value than melt value. 
    The Perth Mint has quite a few platinum offerings with the Platinum Koala being most prevalent as it has been produced in 1 Kilo, 10oz, 2oz, 1oz, 1/2oz, 1/4oz, 1/10oz, and 1/20oz sizes. APMEX offers the 1oz, 1/2oz and 1/4oz. They also occasionally offer unique fractional coins in platinum. JM Bullion currently has a 1/3oz Emperor Penguin coin for sale. 
    I cannot find much information on it, but the Austrian Philharmonic is available on APMEX in both 1oz and 1/25oz sizes, so they at least offer that fractional
    The last one is actually the most unique.  The Isle of Man Platinum Noble was the first platinum investment bullion created, and is still in production today (1oz, 1/2oz, 1/4oz, 1/10oz, and 1/20oz). They are not minted annually and actually have no set schedule, so availability varies.  Also, although being legal tender, they have no fixed face value stamped on the coin.  Their legal worth is actually the value of platinum itself. All their sizes are available through APMEX
    APMEX offers the most variety for platinum that I've seen. Most offerings are out of stock at this time but I'm presuming that's because of the current status of the precious metals market and the massive demand, not true availability
     
    Imperial Russia was truly the first to use platinum coins, with their platinum rubles produced from 1828-1845. These coins are exceedingly rare.  Russia also was making commemorative coins in platinum from 1977-1991.  These also are not commonly available.

    From my basic research most dealers seem to just stock full 1oz Platinum coins. Are there any half, quarter or 1/10th oz Platinum Coins? And which dealers currently stock these.
