Many people ask about buying rhodium coins or rhodium bullion. To make the answer short: there are no rhodium coins or bullion. This is not to say you can't invest rhodium, but it's not as easy as gold or even palladium.
There are a few reasons why they don't make rhodium coins or rhodium bullion:
- Rhodium: rare. There are only 25 tons of it mined per year
- Rhodium: brittle. If it were in coin or bullion form, it could easily break.
- Rhodium: expensive. An ounce it would costs thousands of dollars. Rhodium reached $10,000 for 1 oz this year, I'd imagine that a coin would have had a 10% premium. It is only $1300 for 1 oz now, but if they had them, they wouldn't be selling for any less than $3000
- Rhodium: popular. No one really knows what rhodium is. If governments were to make a coin with 90-some percent rhodium, there would be very little interest.
I added a few rhodium pictures to this page. The top picture shows you the white, silvery shine of a sheet of rhodium. The next picture is pure rhodium in it's raw, but non-powder form. Below you have rhodium wire, and rhodium-plated ring. There is a lot of rhodium-plated jewelry. I ring or a necklace can be a cheap rhodium as $5.00. You won't get much rhodium off it though!
