Palladium Bullion for Sale
When looking through precious metal spot prices, some investors are surprised when they see palladium listed alongside gold, silver, and platinum. Palladium is somewhat lesser known than the other three, but has quickly risen in popularity due to its proven investment strength and rapidly increasing price over the past five-plus years.
Palladium’s rarity and beauty make it a favorite of coin collectors and investors alike, while its relatively-recent discovery gives it additional potential for profit gain.

Platinum vs. Palladium
Many will notice the similar appearance between Palladium and Platinum Bullion, which is unsurprising given palladium is a platinum group metal. However, the two are completely different elements on the periodic table, with several notable differences.
While the appearance is similar, the biggest differences come down to rarity and density.
While Platinum is extremely dense, it is the most durable of all precious metals. Palladium is less dense, although still extremely durable. Palladium is also believed to be at least 10x rarer than Platinum, and almost 30x as rare as gold.
Like Platinum, palladium’s value is increased due to its use in fine jewelry and importance in the auto industry. It helps serve the vital function of emission control, being used in catalytic converters. Increasing demand for emission control has been part of the reason for palladium’s massive increase in value.
Palladium Metal History
Palladium was first identified in 1803, but wasn’t used in coins until the 1960’s. Originally these coins were simply commemorative, and weren’t extremely popular among investors.
In the 1980’s official palladium bullion became more common, but it wasn’t until the 2000’s that countries like the United States and Canada began producing their own bullion.
