Scrap Platinum

Platinum scrap refers to jewelry, coins, and pieces of equipment with no collector value, damaged or unwanted, that incorporate the metal. Considering the limited supplies of the metal, while the price is constantly going upwards, and you can’t really use those items, selling scrap platinum can be viewed as an investment.

Common sources of scrap platinum

Since the metal has a similar appearance to silver and white gold, there is a chance that you are not even aware of the fact that you own platinum. The most common places where you are likely to find platinum items include:

  • Your jewelry box

It is important to note that, while rings and watches will typically have a PT or PT950 marking, earrings and chains may not carry the stamp. Therefore, don’t hesitate to ask for a second opinion from a reputable dealer.

  • Old cars

In the event that you enjoy working on various cars you bought from the junk yard, keep an eye out for catalyst converters. Even a used converter can bring you between $40 and $200 in your pocket.

  • Thermocouple wiring

Even though thermocouple wires are not something everyone has in his or her home, they are very common in the plumbing industry. Therefore, if you know somebody who used to work as a plumber, ask them to sell or give you the wiring.

  • Laboratory equipment

Because it has a high melting point, platinum is often used to create lab utensils, which you are most likely to find at yard sales.



Why sell scrap platinum?

Because the demand for the metal is at an all-time high at this point, this is the perfect time to start trading scrap platinum for cash. The money can be used for virtually anything you have in mind, from finally taking the vacation you have always dreamed of, to starting a new business or expanding the current one.
