Description
Enables the player to change set amounts of gold to a new type of currency: platinum. Platinum coins are worth 1000 coins, but the material is not possible to find in the countryside, so you're the only source. You can sell them to merchants, but really the platinum coins are designed to be similar to bonds, designed to cut down the clutter in your wallet.

It is similar in concept to the Goldfish from torchlight 2, being easier to store in places then thousands and thousands of gold. There are 6 new recipes added for smithing, included in the jewelry section.

1000 Gold coins to 1 Platinum coin
5000 Gold coins to 5 Platinum coins
10000 Gold coins to 10 Platinum coins

As others have said, these do not work when sold, either merchants will buy them for less or sell them for more, not to mention barter. Maybe another smithing recipie to break down platinum?

I suppose the selling vallue will be set to 1000. This would of course bring the buying price up to way more. And the bartering skill would maybe make the merchants pay more then 1000 Gold. However, I don't see the pont of this to begin with as the Gold coins don't weight anything and the Platin coins only pull down a few 0s from your Gold counter.

What would make sense is if you could buy and sell the Platinum coins at the very same price. That way you could circumvent the merchants beeing broke and you having to travel through all of skyrim to empty your inventory.

But, if you sell them to merchants will that not depreciate their value? Merchants will never pay you the full price for anything, there is a built in limit to the percentage value they will pay you.
