Platinum takes its name from the Spanish phrase “platina del Pinto,” or “little silver of the Pinto River.” It’s hard to believe now, but platinum’s immense value was not properly recognized until the 1800s. In fact, the precious metal was once dismissed by gold miners as mere clutter. But as the Russian mint began issuing thousands, then millions of rubles in platinum, this precious metal began its rise to metallurgic stardom. Now platinum coins and bars are among the most treasured currencies around the globe. Today, Aydin Coins & Jewelry Co. is proud to offer several superb examples of platinum.
