What is Bullion?
Bullion is any form of gold, silver or platinum in various bulk forms. Most bullion is melted down and recast in different shapes, forms and sizes. These precious metals are processed by the private mints, most struck with their weight, that is measured by gram, ounce and kilograms by the market. In addition they are struck with their purity, which is 95% - 99.9% pure of the precious metal and the logo from the private mint company that made it.
Because it is bullion, it's value is measured by the weight, purity, and the spot price of the precious metal it is made of. Unlike coins in currency, which are struck with a face value and are more of a mixture of alloys. However, there are bullion rounds that are minted and proofed to resemble coins used as currency. Although, their value exceeds the face value of the actual coin.
The most significant thing about platinum, is that its value is higher than gold. As a matter of fact, platinum is the "white gold" in lay man's terms. It is so malleable, that it can be pounded into a sheet as thin as 100 atoms. In addition, it's rarity exceeds that of gold, which is a main reason it is considered more valuable.
