While platinum coins are increasingly common from mints in the 21st century, the vast majority of platinum bullion collections feature a 1 oz platinum coin as the only option. Previous fractional-ounce coins included 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz weights. A 1/3 oz weight in platinum is very unique. Now, 1/3 oz Platinum Coins are available to you for purchase online from JM Bullion.

Most of the world’s major platinum bullion coin collections debuted between the late 1980s and the mid-1990s. For example, the Canadian Platinum Maple Leaf debuted in 1988 and the American Platinum Eagle debuted in 1997. These collections offered 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz coins at the outset.
Today, however, most platinum bullion coin collections have only a 1 oz option. You can still find fractional-ounce platinum coins as part of commemorative, one-time issues from various mints. The Perth Mint, for example, offers 1/3 oz Platinum coins with varying designs for each date mark.
Obverse and reverse designs on these 1/3 oz Platinum Coins will vary by the program and mint of issue. The Perth Mint’s collection of 1/3 oz platinum is a great place to look for examples of the potential coins you could receive. In 2018, the mint released its first-ever Emperor Penguin design.
The 2018 1/3 oz Platinum Penguin featured an effigy of Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse. For this coin, you will find the fifth-generation effigy of Her Majesty on the obverse as designed in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley. An Emperor Penguin is featured on the reverse of the 1/3 oz Platinum Penguin coins. The release of this particular coin from the Perth Mint was the first-ever 1/3 oz platinum coin from the mint.
These 1/3 oz Platinum Coins are available to you for purchase inside of protective flips. If the coins in this listing are still available with the original mint packaging, that is the item you will receive. These coins come in varied conditions that range from brand new to those with varying levels of wear and tear or flaws. Please note that we do not guarantee the design, date, or condition of the coin you receive. Buying more than one can result in receiving coins with the same dates, designs, and conditions.
