Palladium is a rare silver-white precious metal that is part of the platinum metals group. Other metals in the PMG include platinum, rhodium, ruthenium, iridium, and osmium. All of the metals in this group have similar chemical properties, but it is palladium that features the lowest melting point and is the least dense of the metals in the group.
Most of the existing supply of palladium in the world is used along with platinum in the production of catalytic converters. It is the job of these automotive tools to convert as much as 90% of the harmful gases produced by internal combustion engines into less noxious substances. You’ll also find palladium used in other applications ranging from dentistry and medicine to electronics and groundwater treatment systems.
On the obverse and reverse of these 1 Gram Palladium Bars, youll find varying designs depending on the mint or refinery of origin. PAMP Suisse, Valcambi Suisse, and Credit Suisse are just a handful of the global refineries that produce investment-grade bars in this precious metal.
PAMP Suisse is known as the worlds leading bullion brand and its popular Fortuna design is commonly struck in palladium. Credit Suisse is Switzerlands oldest operating refinery and was originally founded to finance the construction of Switzerlands railway and electric grids. Valcambi Suisse is a younger refinery that has undergone various ownership changes in the 20th century, but remains a prominent brand within the industry.
