Palladium is one of the rarest precious metals on Earth. Discovered by an English chemist in 1803, palladium was named for the asteroid Pallas and is part of the Platinum Group Metals, or PGM. Russia is home to one of four major natural deposits of the metal in the world. As a result, Russia was among the first sovereign states to issue a major palladium bullion collection.
All of the 1 oz Proof Palladium Russian Ballerina Coins in this product listing are proof specimens with frosted visuals and a mirrored background field. The coins are packaged in this listing in protective plastic flips. These palladium coins are available from random years with 1 oz of .9995 fine palladium.
Silver.com offers these coins to you from random years, but cannot guarantee the specific item you will receive. The designs on the obverse of these coins change each year, and as such you could find various different designs. We select your coin based on what is available when your payment is processed. We are not able to reserve a specific design and would like you to keep in mind the potential to receive coins with the same dates and designs when you purchase multiples.
A Russian ballerina always features on the obverse side of the 1 oz Proof Palladium Russian Ballerina. The coins have a new depiction of a ballet dancer on this side with each release, each one capturing the elegant movement and fluid nature of ballet.
The Soviet hammer and sickle are found in the reverse design of all Proof Palladium Russian Ballerinas. Even after the Soviet Union collapsed, the Moscow Mint continued to release the coins with the Soviet symbolism on the reverse field.
