I'm still trying to wrap my head around why spot platinum is cheaper than gold.

Yes, that is a relatively rare occurrence. Pt is almost always $100-200 per oz. more expensive than gold. Pt is also about 1/12th as common as is gold, so it should be more expensive than gold and by quite a lot. It does have quite a few industrial applications, though, and is sometimes seen as an indicator of how well the auto industry is doing. They use quite a bit of Pt and Pd in their catalytic converters.

Ivory Coast 2010 1,000 Francs- Mammoth Tusk w/Fossil Proof
I present for your viewing pleasure an obscure country to knock off the list. And for any of you combination numismatic/paleoanthropologist/fossil hunter/macro-fauna enthusiasts out there, this is a must have.

If you haven't noticed by now, I don't proofread veery well and I apollogize profusely. (;>D

I am not into NCLT, but I have to admit that there is a lot of nice and occasionally innovative art work here.
