a Platinum thread

What would you do with platinum, Ocho, et al? Sell it back at a profit or stick your heirs with it?

ETFs aside, does anyone buy physical platinum or palladium? Probably not too practical, but I love that one can store so much wealth in such a small space. Non-digital space.


Platinum still cheap compared to gold. I don't buy into EVs killing catalytic converters and therefore platinum narrative. Platinum has been cyclically cheap way before anyone cared about Telsa, but this low platinum to gold ratio range is way to the left in the histogram. Last bucket, actually. Golddealer.com has a great price on the platypus coin.

Just for added fun, I bought the PPLT ETF today. Then it immediately went down. Yup, Platinum is Gold's trashy twin sister.

I think I would only buy the physical. As you wrote above, fondle.

The platypus coin is gorgeous. It's like a brilliant proof coin. Good thing I'm not running for Senate from Alabamy.

O0 It's still legal to grope metal. They don't have any rights. Maybe someday, when they house better A.I.
