Though copper is an ancient metal, it's enjoying a 21st-century surge in popularity thanks to the issue of copper rounds and bars. Typically minted in 99.9% pure copper, copper rounds and bars can be found in one-ounce, five-ounce and one-pound weights with Prooflike surfaces.
Since at least 1785, various states have issued copper coins. But it's the designs on other precious metals that have become classics and sought after. The rosy hue of copper rounds and bars make them especially attractive backdrops for replicating historic designs – such as the Buffalo nickel's Native American in profile and bison, the Silver American Eagle and half dollar's Liberty Walking Towards the Dawn of a New Day, the Peace and Morgan dollars' depictions of Liberty, and the two-cent piece with its Union Shield.
Both affordable and dramatic, copper rounds and bars can be part of their own unique collection. They also can expand an existing collection based on either classic or contemporary designs, or on precious metal. They also make great gifts!Read More... Read Less...
