General Details

A new coin on the market is turning heads: The first ever legal tender rhodium coin, it’s the 1 oz Rhodium Tuvalu South Sea Dragon from the venerated Baird & Company.

Each coin, guaranteed at 999.0 purity, is pure rhodium and serves as legal tender. Perhaps most exciting, there were only a thousand of them made! That fact alone should be sufficient to get any seasoned collector salivating.

About the Rhodium Tuvalu South Sea Dragon

The Tuvalu South Sea Dragon Coin is the world’s fist legal tender rhodium coin. It is legal tender in Tuvalu, a small island nation in the South Pacific that became independent of Great Britain in 1978. The South Sea Dragon Coin bears a face value of 100 Tuvaluan dollars, the equivalent of approximately $71 US Dollars.

The obverse side of this bullion coin features the ubiquitous Queen Elizabeth II. The reverse side is much more unusual, depicting the Tuvalu South Sea Dragon in considerable detail. It’s a striking image, one of our very favorites from any of our products.

The Tuvalu South Sea Dragon is produced for by Baird & Co., the UK’s only independent gold refiner. Baird & Co. was the first refiner to develop the technology to make rhodium bars and coins. As rhodium is a brittle metal, the challenge was to make an investment product that was machinable without breaking apart. Due to the properties of rhodium, the coin is almost impossible to scratch and will not tarnish.
