Palladium is a precious metal that, until the 2010s, was largely used for industrial and commercial purposes around the globe. As much as 90% of the supply chain of palladium is believed to go to the production of catalytic converters for automobiles, electronics equipment, dentistry tools, and jewelry.

Palladium is one of the rarest metals in the world. Only four major deposits of palladium are known to exist in the world. The largest of them is, by far, the Bushveld Complex in the Transvaal Basin of south Africa. North America is home to the Stillwater Complex in Montana, USA, and the Sudbury Basin and Thunder Bay District in Canada. Russia’s Norilsk Complex is the other known deposit.
The other major source of palladium available in the modern era is recycling. While the vast majority comes from scrapped catalytic converters in automobiles, palladium is also recycled from jewelry and electronics.
Obverse and reverse design elements on these 1/10 oz Palladium Rounds vary based on the issuing mint and the particular design program. One such example is the 1/10 oz Lewis & Clark Palladium Round. Issued by Johnson Matthey and the Stillwater Mining Company, these rounds were produced only in 2004 to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the Lewis & Clark Expedition to chart the lands acquired by the United States in the Louisiana Purchase. In addition to the 1/10 oz round, the series offered 1 oz and 1/2 oz palladium rounds as well. This particular series of palladium rounds was unique in that Stillwater Mining guaranteed the palladium used in the production of the rounds came from the Stillwater Complex in the United States.
These 1/10 oz Palladium Rounds are available to you today in varied conditions from any mint. The rounds will most likely ship in a protective flip, though we will use the original packaging if it is available for a particular product. We cannot hand-pick specific designs or mints of origin. We are also unable to guarantee the condition of a particular round.
Conditions for the rounds in this listing range from brand-new to those with varying degrees of wear and tear present. If you purchase more than one round, please keep in mind that you could receive several matching items.
