William Hyde Wollaston discovered a silvery-white precious metal in 1803 that would come to be known as palladium. As a chemical element, palladium is grouped within the platinum metals group with platinum, rhodium, ruthenium, iridium, and osmium. Each of the metals in this group share similar chemical properties.
Palladium is sometimes mistaken at first glance for platinum because it has a similar, lustrous silvery-white appearance. Compared to its fellow platinum group metals though, palladium has the lowest melting point and is the least dense metal in the group. Major ore deposits of palladium are concentrated in four areas of the globe: South Africa’s Transvaal Basin, Montana’s Stillwater Complex, the Thunder Bay district of Ontario, and the Norilsk Complex in Russia.
On the obverse face of the 1 oz Palladium Baird Mint Bar you’ll find the engraving of “Baird & Co.” at the top of the bar, followed by the engravings “Bullion Merchants, London” below, and the bar’s weight, purity, and metal content. Along the very bottom there is a matte finish section that features the bar’s individual serial number.
The reverse side of the bar features a brilliant, matte finish that includes only a mirrored oval surrounding the website for the Baird Mint, “Bairdmint.com.” Each of these brilliant 1 oz Palladium Baird Mint bars ships in a tamper-evident plastic package that lets you know if your product has been compromised in anyway after leaving the mint.
Baird & Company Mint was founded in London in 1967 to deal in numismatic gold coins. Today, the company operates a 30,000 square-foot facility where it produces investment-grade bullion bars in gold, silver, platinum, palladium, and rhodium.
