    Currently, rhodium sells for $450 over spot for a 1oz Baird & co bar at Goldstackers. If the same, sealed bar were put up in the classifieds section of SS for say $100-200 over spot, would there be buyers?

    I would only buy it if it was at spot really.

    Rhodium is currently on bid at US$1285 but ask is US$1385 (Kitco) which is about AU$1562. Rhodium always has this big spread between bid and ask.
    BB is selling bars at AU$1670 which is about $100 over asking price. The local price adds another $160 for GST.
    Not sure what you are on about $450 over spot ?

    As Rhodium prices are not regularly updated you may find the price is out of date on GS site - call them up.

    I think they're just more expensive. Looks like I bought at the wrong place!
    What's BB?

    I'd buy Rhodium once I had enough of all the other PM's I wanted, alas, that will be some time off.

    Problem with Rh is GST like Pd. I think it's a gamble but there is a lot of upside potential. Remember Rh was $10k per oz a few years ago.
    Nothing wrong with a few oz just for fun.
