An unusual new coin is starting to turn heads. It’s legal tender and contains one ounce of Rhodium – the Baird & Company’s prestigious Tuvalu South Sea Dragon 1 oz Rhodium Coin.
As a legal tender and pure rhodium coin, each coin is guaranteed at 999.0 purity. Perhaps most exciting, only 1,000 coins were produced. It would be enough to make any seasoned collector salivate just by knowing that.
It has legal tender in Tuvalu, an independent nation in the South Pacific from Britain that gained independence in 1978. Moreover, the Dragon coin has a face value of 100 Tuvaluan Dollars. Queen Elizabeth II is depicted on the obverse side of this bullion coin. There is a lot more detail on the reverse side, depicting the Tuvalu South Sea Dragon. Among all our products, this is one of the favourite images.
Baird & Co., the first refiner in the world to develop rhodium bar and coin technology, produced the Tuvalu South Sea Dragon. Rhodium is a brittle metal, so the challenge was to make an investment product that would not break apart when machinable. Rhodium will not tarnish and is almost impossible to scratch.
