The 1 oz $5 Banknote Copper Rounds we sell are designed to look like a $5 bill, but not the $5 bill you may be used to seeing today. Instead, these coins are modeled after the 1899 silver certificate in the denomination of $5.

The $5 banknote that was released in 1899 features the image of a Native American chief who was known as Running Antelope. He was in charge of the Hunkpapa tribe, which was part of the Lokata Indians. Seeing his image on the front of this round – in full headdress – should remind you of a major part of America’s history at the turn of the century. If you are interested in this time period or are simply inspired by the Native Americans’ part in shaping history, a 1 Oz $5 Banknote Copper Round would make a nice addition to your collection.
This base metal has increased in popularity among coin collectors for its many popular designs and also among investors because it has so many uses. That’s why its value has not dropped in recent years, and yet it is still affordable at this time. So if you are used to mostly investing in gold and silver, consider adding copper to your selection.
