GET WITH THE PROGRAM.These days, even the U.S. Mint is manufacturing, promoting, and selling coins made from precious metals other than the conventional gold and silver, the most widely touted as investments. In 1997, for example, the Mint began producing platinum bullion coins in various denominations and weights. And in 2017, the one troy-ounce palladium American Eagle made its appearance, joining the growing array of platinum and palladium investment coins and bars that are now available. The new palladium coin is a member of the American Eagle family, even though its obverse features a high-relief likeness of “Winged Liberty” from the Mercury dime obverse designed by Adolph A. Weinman. The first issue of 15,000 pieces sold out instantly.

Coin experts John Albanese and Scott Travers took notice of Passin’s analysis, recommended it themselves, and watched rhodium soar from under $800 per troy ounce to close to $2,400 by September 2018.
