Platinum, the most common metal of the platinum group, has similar characteristics as palladium, and is also traded in bullion form. Its demand in industrial applications has soared in the last couple decades for use in catalytic converters and other emissions control purposes. Since the early 1990s, platinum remains the preferred metal among various celebrities. It is regarded as the symbol of beauty and timelessness, the ultimate in elegance. Coins minted from this metal have a white-silver appearance.
Other metals can be used for coinage as well, but their use is more rare. Northwest Territorial Mint has minted coins in niobium and in zirconium in which the customer, the Wah Chang Company, supplied the difficult to obtain source metal.
Firehouse Coins is a part of Northwest Territorial Mint, one of the Country’s largest and most respected minters of fine custom coins and medallions.
