Stillwater Mining Company and Northwest Territorial Mint in Conjunction with Johnson Matthey Announce the Availability of Palladium Bullion Commemorating the Lewis & Clark Expedition. Palladium is a precious metal and part of the platinum group metals.

The result is the only American produced palladium bullion available. This unique product comes in the form of bars and rounds of 1 ounce and rounds of fractional ounces.

Palladium is a soft, silvery-white platinum group metal that is more valuable than silver and more rare than gold. It also has a large number of industrial applications because of its important catalytic properties. Its largest single use is in automobile catalytic converters, but it sees other uses in electronics as an excellent and tarnish free conductor, and in other uses as wide ranging as a chemical industry catalyst, dental crowns, jewelry and fine art photography, among other uses.

Lewis & Clark passed nearby the present Stillwater mining area on their journey through Montana.
