Sierra Leone was the first to actually issue coins composed of palladium during 1966. A year later, Tonga began issuing coins from palladium, which included the Tonga Palladium Hau. Since then, Australia, Bermuda, the British Virgin Islands, Canada, China, the Cook Islands, France, the Isle of Man, Malawi, Russia, Portugal, Samoa, Slovakia, Switzerland, and the United States have begun using palladium in coinage. Most of these, however, are not in general circulation, usually being commemorative coins.
Canadian Big & Little Bear Constellations and the Palladium Maple LeafEdit
The Canadian Big & Little Bear Constellations is the lowest mintage coin ever minted by the Royal Canadian Mint, having a total of less than 1200 coins minted. There are four versions which correspond to the four seasons. The actual mintages are 297 spring coins, 296 summer coins, 296 autumn coins, and 293 winter coins.
The Royal Canadian Mint also minted Palladium Maple Leaf coins from 2005 to 2007. They were composed of 99.95% pure palladium (.9995 quality), each containing a troy ounce of pure palladium. These coins are legal tender in Canada. The coin's reverse features a maple leaf, a symbol of Canada, while its obverse features Queen Elizabeth II.
