Palladium

Palladium is a soft silver-white metal that resembles platinum. It is very valuable and is getting more popular with gold investing. Contact AGE today for gold, platinum, silver, and palladium strategies.

Palladium is a soft, silvery-white metal that shares many of the characteristics common to the PGMs, such as a relatively high melting point and high density. Although high for a metal, palladium's melting point and density are the lowest of the PGMs.

Palladium, much like platinum , is very resistant to oxidation and corrosion , and has excellent catalytic properties. This is mainly due to the fact that palladium has an abnormal - and astounding - ability to absorb hydrogen gas at a rate of 900 times its own volume.

One of the first unique applications for palladium, which still continues, was in developing photographic prints. The process, known as 'platinotype', which can use either platinum or palladium, was used as early as the late 18th century.

But palladium, like all PGMs, was inhibited by its rarity and high price. This began to change after the discovery of large stores of the metals were discovered in South Africa in the 1920s and Canada in the 1930s. Not long after this, palladium and platinum began to be used in dental alloys .

The biggest breakthrough for palladium, however, came in the 1970s when automobile emission standards were implemented in the USA. Demand for palladium increased dramatically. Palladium's ability to absorb carbon monoxide and purify hydrogen made it integral to automobile catalytic converters .

Growing interest in palladium as an investment tool has also led to exchange traded funds, which are backed by physical palladium, being traded on the London and New York Stock Exchanges. Palladium futures are traded on the New York Mercantile Exchange and palladium bullion is also one of only four metals to have an ISO currency code (the others are gold, silver  and platinum).
