One of the smallest niches for bullion coins is the palladium market. Palladium coins have come and gone over the course of time, with just a few coin programs still in production on a regular basis in the 21st century.
Examples of Palladium Coins

- American Palladium Eagle: The most recent addition to the market, the American Palladium Eagle debuted in 2017 with only a 1 oz weight available. The coin replicates the image of the historic Mercury Dime, with Winged Liberty on the obverse and an American bald eagle on the reverse. The coins are issued in only one version each year, with Proof, Reverse Proof, BU, and Burnished versions all issued individually as of 2017.
- Canadian Palladium Maple Leaf: The Royal Canadian Mint introduced the Palladium Maple Leaf coin in 2005. It features the iconic maple leaf design on the reverse, with the reigning British monarch on the obverse. In 2024, this design will feature King Charles III. The coins are struck in .9995 fine palladium and are available in various sizes, including 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz.
