Default Fractional Physical Palladium

There isn't much fractional physical palladium to choose from. I found a 1/2 oz Russian coin at the Prosident site, and yesterday I found this:

http://www.mtbcoins.com/code/bullion_platinum_21.html

I find it interesting that they mention: "...these bars are primarily designed for jewelry." I think that's the last thing I'd use those bars for.

IMO the '04-'05 1/2 oz pd Panda will Rule in upside potential for A Long Time, with only 8,000 of each yr

in bars, 10 1/10th stillwaters is my fav moneymaker

The link is pt libs, pd they show the regular pamp cornucopia gal (a Sweet bar that I quit buying @ 400, sold @ 6,7 & 800)

Thanks for catching my mistaken link. I meant to post a link to the palladium liberty 1 gram, and 5 gram . Thanks for the information on the other palladium bullion.

Pd market is a mess and is only getting worse. coins with 400 mintage going for spot. rounds with 10K's mintage double spot.

Well Said . This is a buyers market in most instances. . .

I am getting bored with 'Russian Stockpile/no stockpile' crap. They were probably the ones who robbed Ford ($1,000+) back in the day, but the markets that aren't "flight to safe haven" driven (pt & pd) are getting killed on a regular basis: makes no sense

I purchased a 1/10th ozt. Stillwater palladium round for around $90. I was surprised by the size of it -it's larger then a dime whereas the same weight in gold is smaller then a dime. Also, to me Palladium, Silver and Platinum all look very similar with the exception of how silver tarnishes so much.

I was at one of my LCS 2 weeks ago and they had 2 russian fractional coins. One 1/2 oz and one 1/4 oz. I think they were priced reasonably - spot plus 5% but didn't buy them. Bought silver instead. Would you have bought them at that price or is that sort of the norm? Maples and even the bars carry higher premiums and they're 1 oz. You'd get fractionals for cheaper. Where can you get Pd for spot? I do not have any Pd in my stack...

Stillwater makes palladium in 1, 1/2, 1/4, and 1/10 oz sizes. (refined by Johnson Matthey)
They can be found on NWTM website, or the bay. If your only looking to buy 1 coin, the premiums will be very high on the bay.

Then there are the 1/2 ounce Russian Ballerinas I believe.
There was a member here on kitco who had one of these up for sale. Try the Buy/sell/trade thread and you might find something.

Other than that, there's not a whole lot else out there that hasn't been mentioned... either that or I just havn't been looking in the right spots. I know there are several old palladium coins that were used as money in some countries. Many of these carry numismatic premiums though.

Personally, I like the 1 ounce maple leafs, you don't have to deal with high premiums, and you get a highly recognizable coin.

Good luck!

IMO just cough up the cheddar for 1 oz pamps or maples. Fractional pd has by far the largest premium over spot in all pm categories.

Do it right the first time
