Platinum Maples… Where can I find mintage and value?

I have a fractional platinum Maple I’d like to know the mintage and value of. Is there an online resource to which I can refer?

    Here is a chart for the mintages i found on Google,

    From what I gather, they didnt make any Platinum coins for ten years following 1999 then I can only find 1oz coin mintages

    It's all about what the people want...

    Thank you so much! This is exactly what I was looking for.

    What kind of premium (if any) would a 1996 1/4oz be worth?

    Use completed listings on eBay as a guide.

    Tried that, found none. Is there an alternative resource for pricing?

    Not really, you can search heritage auctions, great collections and other auction houses...

    Ebay has 42 completed listings for "Platinum Maple' but non are 1/4th oz coins.

    There is a 1999 1/4th oz platinum active now for $799 "buy it now' which IMO is priced High.

    Generally speaking, I read that platinum coins are bringing 15% over, but yours being a fractional probably bumps that up some maybe to 30%

    It's all about what the people want...

    If I were interested in buying a 1/4 oz platinum maple, I'd be looking to offer spot, but if I were selling one, I'd be looking to sell it at 15% - 20% over spot. That's my interpretation of the market today. The platinum bullion market hasn't been very strong for years, down $36/oz today as we speak.

    Do I think it's undervalued? Yes. Do I think there is good potential in the next 1-2 years? Yup. For platinum, the automotive market is still the main driver, and the question is simply when the car companies decide that palladium has become too expensive.

    It's a bullion coin. Any reason to believe it commands more value than a 1/4 oz Pt eagle? Probably not. Mintages are lower yes, but Canada has 1/10 the population of US. At today's Pt spot around $930, a bullion dealer may give you $250 for it. Probably a bit of a reach to expect more that $350 in a private sale, or through auction like eBay.

    Best to sell it here to an ocd stacker trying to get his percentages exactly right :#
