Palladium Coins Offer an Opportunity
Palladium coins are few, bring mined by only a few major mints. Yet, palladium is a quite valuable metal. Certainly, palladium is much more valuable than silver. As palladium coins are being minted they offer an excellent way to diverse a coin collection.
Palladium is slowly joining platinum and gold as an alternate precious metal used in coin minting. It is a metal well worth owning, since its value is quite high per ounce. What is needed for palladium coins to take their place as desired coins is that they become more widely known, and mints to make more palladium coins readily available.
