    when was the last time gold was higher than platinum? i thought it was in 2008, but i was told today it was 20 years ago?

    i guess i'm too lazy to look it up :/image


    p.s.. i think there's way too much hype around gold right now.... "sell on the news"

    It was 2008. Gold fell, but platinum fell harder.

    Back in the 1860's and 1870's, when platinum was cheaper than gold, a number of counterfeit gold coins were made from platinum-copper alloys. I wonder if this will happen again!

    Didn't take long, but Plat., once again, has taken the lead over Gold.

    Yes, Platinum was lower than gold back around 1990 as well.

    Gold takes out rhodium, or rhodium takes itself out? Either way I think it will.

    Gold and platinum have now passed rhodium. Is rhodium underpriced?

    And rhodium is 10x the original price (after falling about 10,000$ in the last couple months. -> that’s nuts

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

    . . . and gold is down $70 in the last 10 years.

    And the dollar has lost 17% of its value during that time, according to the CPI.

    Yeah....i thought this was a recent thread. After all the promises of "theories" and "spiracies" over the last decade i woulda thought gold would be $10k by now. Maybe in another decade or two or three.

    Looks like gold is spiking a bit now.... inflation fears and stock market jitters.... Cheers, RickO
