Platinum - Statistics & Facts

Platinum is a gray-white colored precious metal. It has important applications in the global production of autocatalysts, jewelry, chemicals, and more. It is highly resistant to corrosion, among other desirable traits, and thus has a value somewhat similar to gold. For instance, platinum's average value in 2019 was 868 U.S. dollars per troy ounce, while the average price of gold in that year was some 1,393 U.S. dollars per troy ounce.

The largest platinum producing country by far is South Africa, having produced an estimated 130 metric tons of platinum in 2019. Russia is the second-largest platinum producing country in the world, with a significantly lower production of an estimated 22 metric tons in that year. In the United States, which is the world's fifth-largest platinum producer, Stillwater Mining Co. is the only company that produces platinum. Stillwater Mining Co. produced some 593,974 ounces of platinum group metals in the United States in 2019.
