A new symbol is up for grabs in Australia.
The price of platinum is set to go up in 2018, after an auction of the old symbol.
The symbol, which has become a symbol of the country’s riches and has been around for almost 50 years, was first introduced in the early 1800s, with a price tag of about $4,000.
Now, it is being sold for about $2,500, a figure that is almost half the value of the original symbol.
The auction on Wednesday night brought in about $1.5 million, with the highest bid being made by a man from the northern state of Tasmania, who paid about $3,500.
The new price will mean that the current price of gold will be in the $1,100 to $1 and $1 million range, but gold prices are likely to stay higher, particularly in the coming months.
“The platinum symbol is a symbol that is a lot more symbolic than the gold and silver symbols, and has a lot of appeal to people,” said Stephen Brown, who runs the Australian Gold Association.
“There is a real need for people to think of gold and platinum as an alternative currency, as a way to exchange things for other things, and it’s also the way to secure a higher quality of life.”
“Platinum has been used as currency in different parts of the world for decades,” said Mr Brown, whose association represents platinum producers and traders.
“This new symbol has a strong economic rationale for why it’s used as an instrument of exchange, and the potential for the platinum price to go down.”
The new symbol was introduced in 1899, and became the platinum coin that was used for currency.
The new symbol had a price of $4.5 per pound of platinum.
“It’s the first time that we’ve had a platinum coin, it’s the biggest platinum coin ever, so it’s a real challenge,” said Paul McAlpine, who is chairman of the Australian platinum industry body the Platinum Association.
The platinum coin was the only one of its kind in the world, but was later replaced with a silver coin.
The silver coin was introduced after the first coin was scrapped.
The Australian platinum trade has been largely unaffected by the increase in the price of the symbol, because most platinum is made by mining operations in Australia, so the industry has benefited from the increase.
“When we’ve got mining companies coming in, we’ve always had a bit of a downturn,” said David McCartin, president of the Platinum and Gold Association of Australia.
“We had a downturn in production a few years ago, and they came in with a massive amount of new ore.
The mining industry has recovered, so that’s been good for us.”
Mr McAlpine said the increase would help keep prices high for many years to come.
“I’m not going to deny that the platinum market is going to continue to grow and I think that the new platinum coin will do that,” he said.
“People will have to adjust to it a bit more, but that’s the price we’ve seen.”
