Platypus usually go under water so you need the scuba gear to search the thread.
It was only after I posted that I realised how old the thread was..
I think we should all have a few Platypus in the stack.
I went to buy a 2013 and they offered me a 2011 for the same price. Couldn't pass that up!
And yes, it was a site sponsor
Ordered my first ever platypus 1 oz today. Actually first bit of platinum ever. Pretty excited
Anyone seen sight of the 2015 Platypus ??? Should have been out this month ?

Not to be conspiratorial as I was accused of yesterday - is there a platinum shortage ?

The platypus have a rather significant premium over spot.

The price above spot at the moment is around $120 - compared with PAMP bar $100 and Baird and Co $70.

Only get spot maybe from a dealer, probably get your premium back if you want the risk and hassle of selling here
There are also meets in capital cities.
I've bought Platipi from forum here and paid the premium to the member who's selling
