Bullion bars are extremely popular among investors in particular because of the value precious metals bars hold as investment vehicles. However, many often focus solely on gold and silver. Palladium is a valuable precious metal from the platinum metals group.
On the obverse of these 10 oz Palladium Credit Suisse Bars you’ll find the image of the Credit Suisse name and logo in its trademark rectangle at the top of the bar. This is followed by the weight, purity, and metal content of the bar engraved in the center, with additional markings of the assayer’s stamp and the individual serial number.
The reverse of all 10 oz Palladium Credit Suisse Bars includes only the image of the Credit Suisse logo, which consists of the company name inside of a rectangle.

Each of these 10 oz Palladium Credit Suisse Bars ships to you inside of a plastic sleeve and includes a numbered assay card.
As a metal itself, palladium bears a number of common characteristics with platinum, which is no shock given its position within the platinum metals group. However, it is its own separate metal from platinum. More than half the global supply of palladium is used in the production of catalytic converters that filter 90% of the harmful toxins out of the air expelled by automotive engines.
Credit Suisse has one of the most unique background stories of any mint or refinery in the world. Founded in 1856 by Alfred Escher, Schweirzerische Kreditanstalt (or Swiss Credit Union) was created in order to help fund the development of the national rail system in Switzerland. The group issued loans to help create the Swiss electrical grid also, and even provided funding for the European rail system.
