Thinking about buying 4 more as the special is still on.
    Premiums for 1/2 oz plat are usually pretty high -- so those 1/2 eagles are a relatively good price. Still, you can find many 1 oz plat bullion for lower premiums -- what you need to consider, is can you sell these 1/2 oz plat back for more then 1 oz bullion (per oz) such that they are indeed a good deal?

    Coincidentally -- the 1/2 oz plat eagle is what I myself have reported buying not long ago here in groups of 4+ -at prices just under 1000 per oz. (so under 500 per coin). Mine were graded & slabbed -- but not sure if that will help me sell them for more. I will soon try to sell them, and then get (or trade for) regular non-graded platinum -- just don't like plastic covering, nor the extra room they take up. If you like your eagles to be graded & slabbed -- let me know!

    Same with me - I avoid the slabs because of the bulk. I only buy slabbed when it is cheaper than non-slabbed bullion, or may buy proof slabs/sets if they are the same price as BU bullion.

    I pulled the trigger on 4 more half ounce coins, so I got them for just under spot per ounce. I'm typically content to get Pt at its usual markup or less (it used to be $100 on the 1 oz coins, but seems more like $50 to $70 now). Note that the buy back price is typically above spot for eagles at most of the online dealers, at least for non-graded. Not sure if they will give you more for graded or not. I won't sell it until the platinum gold ratio reverts back the other way (flip for gold) or Pt has gone up so much I'm making a profit. May take a while, but at least it isn't like Rhodium...

    My next shot, and biggest yet will be if <$880 and $400 oz < then au.

    Did just get some gold - -need to keep my holdings balanced. Thinking of selling some Rhodium now for platinum -- a one for two deal, and got the Rhodium when less then plat!

    Targeted at sub 860. Then after the shot, charts acted almost as if a bear in retreat. No "truck" backing up -- just having fun with easy to get dry powder supply.
