ON PALADIUM COINS

Regarding palladium coins, Ralf Böpple writes: "In the 1840s,
Russia issued coins in palladium which were actually meant for
circulation, but as I assume that there are E-Sylumites more
knowledgeable in Russian numismatics than me, I will leave this
topic to them.

However, I know of a coin or a coin set from Sierra Leone,
celebrating the 5th anniversary of the country - which would
make the year of issue 1966. I don’t know if these items were
actually put on the market in 1966, though.

I remember having seen one of these coins at a local coin show
in an exhibit on “Lions on Coins” (there is a lion head on the
coin) a few years ago, but I have been unable to find out more
about them for the E-Sylum (my library is a little weak on
novelty coins…)"
