Home to one of only four known natural deposits of palladium, Russia was one of the first nations in the world to release a palladium bullion coin. In fact, historically speaking, the Soviet Union/Russian Federation has issued the most palladium bullion coins of any nation in the world. You can now own one of the most popular palladium coins from Russia with the Proof Russian Ballerina. Today, you have the opportunity to get Proof Russian Ballerina 1/4 oz Palladium Coins online at Provident Metals.
There are four known deposits of palladium in the world today. Two are located on the North American continent, one on the African continent, and one in Russia. The Stillwater Complex in Montana and the Sudbury Basin in Ontario represent the palladium deposits in North America. The Transvaal Basin in South Africa represents the palladium deposit in Africa. The Norilsk Complex holds Russias natural palladium deposit.
On the obverse face of the Proof Russian Ballerina 1/4 oz Palladium Coin is a depiction of a ballet dancer. The ballet was one of the first cultural influences from the outside world to infiltrate Russian society after the empire began to open up in the 18th century. The strength and discipline required to succeed in ballet were prized in Russian society. The Moscow Ballet is one of the most successful in the world.
The reverse side of Proof Russian Ballerina Palladium Coins includes a vision of the hammer and sickle, official symbols of the Soviet Union. The design element includes inscriptions in Cyrillic and comes with a mark of the denomination on this face of the coin. The design elements on this side continued to feature Soviet-era symbols even after the 1991 dissolution of the Soviet Union, with the Moscow Mint continuing to use the images through 1995 when the series concluded.
Russian Ballerina Palladium Coins were one of the worlds first major palladium bullion coins, but not the first-ever palladium coins. The first palladium coin ever issued was released in 1966 by Sierre Leone. Tonga issued a palladium coin of its own in 1967, with subsequent collections debuting in the Soviet Union, France, Australia, China, and Canada. Today, the Canadian Maple Leaf Palladium Coin and American Eagle Palladium Coins are the leading options in production.
