From the historical London Fix data for 2009 on Kitco.com:

Gold went from a low of $810.00 USD an ounce on January 15, to a high of $1218.25 on December 3 — a 50% increase.

Platinum went from a low of $915.00 an ounce on January 15, to a high of $1500.00 on December 3 — a 64% increase.

Silver went from a low of $10.51 an ounce on January 15, to a high of $19.18 on December 2 — an 82% increase.

Palladium went from a low of $176.00 an ounce on January 15, to a high of $402.00 on December 31 — a 128% increase.

To those who say palladium has no historical use as a currency, consider that it has its own international currency code (XPD), along with gold (XAU), silver (XAG) and platinum (XPT), the Canadian Mint minted one ounce coins from 2005-2007 and in 2009, and you can purchase that and other palladium bullion here, and from other stores like Kitco.
