Fortuna was the first-ever intricate design to feature on a bullion bar and it captures the Roman goddess of fortune in left-profile relief. Rosa is a simpler design that bears a singular rose stem with various petals in bloom on the design.
PAMP Suisse is widely regarded as the leading bullion brand in the world and originated in Ticino, Switzerland. Today it is part of the MKS Global Group located in Geneva. Credit Suisse is another major palladium producer with bars that typically feature the Credit Suisse logo.
Palladium was discovered in 1803 by William Hyde Wollaston. The metal is named after the asteroid Pallas, a celestial body that was itself named after the epithet for the Greek goddess Athena. Palladium has a variety of uses that range from electronics and hydrogen purification to dentistry and medicinal tools.
The metal is one of Earth’s rarest and is found in abundance in just four locations around the world. An increasingly common source of palladium today is recycling as old catalytic converters are scrapped. Between various applications of palladium and limited supplies, palladium prices have increased significantly and resulted in considerable investment interest.
