Same Weight, Smaller Size


Recommended Posts

I’ve finally figured out something which had been bugging me for quite some time about my 1oz gold and silver coins. Both weigh exactly 1 troy ounce, except that the gold ones are significantly smaller in size. I’m planning to get a 2oz Perth Mint gold coin which appears to be the same size as my 1oz Perth Mint silver coins. In fact, they both seem to come in the same-sized capsule. I read somewhere “Not only is gold worth significantly more per ounce than silver, but also it is the denser of the two metals, making a specified volume of gold worth far more than an equal volume of silver.”

Correct! 😀

Now, just for fun and if you have the time, change silver for platinum in the above statement 😉

Technically, alcohol is a solution..

'It [socialism] poses a growing threat, however unintentional, to the freedom of this country, for there is no freedom where the State totally controls the economy. Personal freedom and economic freedom are indivisible. You can’t have one without the other. You can’t lose one without losing the other.'

Let not England forget her precedence of teaching nations how to live.

That comparison won’t work because platinum is heavier than either gold or silver. It is about 60% heavier than gold. Perhaps you meant to say if I changed gold for platinum in the above statement.

Platinum is the denser of the two metals yet is "a specified volume of platinum worth far more than an equal volume of gold.”?'

No, at the moment it isn't. Historically it has been but its density is not the reason why.

Anyway, it wasn't much fun after all 😊

platinum is about 10% heavier than gold for

a fixed volume of metal.
