Understanding Rare, Precious Metals

Valuable metals are some of the most sought-after investments in the world. Rare, beautiful and timeless, these inconspicuous elements on the period table are worth quite a bit to your wallet. Take gold for example—one metric ton of it is so dense it could be contained in 37 cubic centimeters and be worth more than $12 million. Platinum, one of the world's rarest metals, is naturally found in the earth's crust, courtesy of shattered meteorites from two billion years ago. Today, platinum is considered the crème de la crème of precious metals, worth a whopping $1,620 an ounce.

Before you throw those old hoop earrings or hand-me-down cufflinks away, check out this playlist—you may be the owner of cashable precious metals. Explore the precarious world of precious metals, what give them their value, and discover if your junk drawer is really a hidden treasure chest.
