It's important to understand that the spot price shown above on BullionVault's chart is provided for reference. Like the spot price published by other sources (such as Reuters or Bloomberg) it represents the average of many wholesale quotes, and – crucially – it represents the average of those quotes' mid-points.

Spot, in other words, doesn't necessarily reflect a price you might actually get from any individual bank or dealer, and it cannot reflect the spread between prices to buy and prices to sell.

For private investors, only BullionVault gives you direct access to that trading spread, enabling you to set or accept prices as you choose using our live Order Board.

The Daily Price of platinum is determined by London's biggest bullion banks, who agree on a price to clear their outstanding client and inhouse orders at a fixed time each day. The London Bullion Market Association publishes this price on its website.

Orders are processed shortly after the price is determined using a provisional, estimated price, and then adjusted to the published price on the following working day. Place your order for platinum by 1:35pm to secure the daily price shown (1:35pm for palladium, 2:35pm for gold, 11:40am for silver).
