Buy 1 oz Rhodium Tuvalu South Sea Dragon Coin
First mintage of only 1,000 coins!
Baird & Co., Britain’s only gold refinery has launched the world's first legal tender coin made of rhodium: the Tuvaluan $100 Coin.
Rhodium is the one of the world’s rarest metals. It is a brittle metal which when refined metamorphoses into a dazzlingly bright, silver metal. A member of the platinum family, rhodium is 100 times rarer than gold. Baird & Co is the first company to develop the technology to manufacture rhodium bars, coins and jewelry that are machinable and not brittle.
The Tuvaluan $100 Coin is similar in size to the UK’s £2 coin and also features the Queen’s head. That is where the similarity ends: the face value is 100 Tuvaluan dollars (approximately £55). The coin won’t scratch or tarnish - rhodium is highly resistant.
The coins are legal tender in the South Pacific island of Tuvalu, a member of the Commonwealth which became independent from Britain in 1978.

About Baird & Co.
Baird & Co. was established in 1967, dealing in collectible gold coins first, the firm moved towards high volume bullion gold dealing as government restrictions eased in the early 1970s. By 1975, Baird & Co. was actively 'making a market' by quoting both bullion buy and sell prices for banks, stockbrokers, coin dealers, retail, wholesale jewelers, and other high volume traders in bullion gold coins. Baird & Co. became one of the UK's leading trading houses in the 1970s and early 1980 precious metal bull markets.
