All of the metals in the platinum metals group have similar chemical properties, though each one also has its own uniqueness. When it comes to palladium, it boasts the lowest melting point of any metal in the group and is the least dense. It was discovered by William Hyde Wollaston and named after the asteroid Pallas.
These 2.5 Gram Palladium Bars from Silver.com are offered in varied conditions and come from any mint in this listing. Silver.com will package your bars in the appropriate protective packaging to ensure the condition at the time we pick the bar remains the same when you receive it. While some bars may be in brand-new condition still and come with original packaging, other bars may have signs of wear and tear, present with production flaws, and not have original packaging available. In this particular case, Silver.com will wrap the bar in protective materials inside of the shipping box.
Silver.com picks all items in this listing once your payment is processed. We cannot accommodate any requests for particular bar designs or conditions. If you buy more than one bar, we would like you to note that you may receive bars that all have the same design and come in the same condition.
Obverse and reverse designs will vary on these 2.5 Gram Palladium Bars. It is impossible to know in advance which bar you will receive, but we can offer you some idea of what the design elements may look like. If you receive a minted ingot, you can expect to find a unique design on one side with a mint logo and identifying inscriptions on the other side. Additionally, minted ingots often have designs engraved onto the surface of the bar in 3D relief.
Conversely, hand-poured or cast palladium bars tend to have design elements feature on just one side of the specimen. You are likely to find that in most, but not all, cases these bars will have design elements struck incuse into the bar’s surface.
