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.
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.
On the obverse face of the 1 oz Baird Mint Palladium Bar you’ll find numerous engravings arranged from top to bottom vertically on the bar. These include the name of the mint, the city in which the headquarters of Baird is located, the weight, purity, and metal content of the bar, as well as an individual serial number.
The reverse face of the bar has a contrasting matte finish and features only the name of the mint’s website, which is surrounded by an oval shape that has a mirrored outline in it to create stunning contrast in the design of the bar.
Baird Mint, known as Baird and Company by its full name, is located in London in the United Kingdom. The company occupies a 30,000 square foot refining facility just outside the city’s limits and was opened for the first time in 1967.
