Rhodium bar - 1 troy ounce - .999 bullion


Long ago we decided not to try to compete with existing commercially available precious metals products but as we have already filled out many of the metallic elements in the periodic table, the glaring holes of some of the most intriguing and precious of the elemental metals still unfilled are becoming more obvious. We thus decided it was time to offer our customers options to obtain from us some of these other elemental metals such as gold, platinum, palladium, and rhodium.

We are very pleased to offer this fine rhodium bullion product from Baird & Company of London, England. This Baird Mint product will come sealed in its original factory packaging as pictured. Rhodium is one of six platinum group metals and along with osmium and iridium are the three rarest stable elements in the earth's crust with rhenium being the fourth. Rhodium was discovered by William Hyde Wollaston in 1803 and is used in jewelry fabrication, in nuclear reactors and electrical contacts, and as a catalyst in the automotive and chemical industries. The combination of its extreme rarity and important industrial uses, have caused prices to swing wildly over the years. One such gyration occurring between 2004 and 2008 when the price rocketed from about $500 to $10,000 an ounce. A recent low of about $600 was set in 2016 and it's current price as of March 2019 is a bit north of $3000. Who knows where the current rally will take us? Own what's rare!
