Copper is often viewed by modern investors as nothing more than a commodity, similar to grains and oil. While this isn’t untrue, it has value well beyond those items and is worthy of the attention gold and silver have received in recent years. One of the most in-demand metals right now, copper bullion products are now gaining steam among investors. The 1 Pound Bullion Copper Loaf Bar is currently available for purchase on Silver.com.

Cooper is a chemical element that is soft, malleable, and ductile. The high thermal and electrical conductivity of copper have made it a popular precious metal in human history. Used in everything from weapons and armor to plates and forks, copper has been there at each point of advancement in human history.
Many of the circulation coins struck in the United States today have some percentage of copper included in the metal alloys that make up the coin’s elemental structure. Copper’s resistance to corrosion makes it a great alloy for use in coins because it can withstand the handling and abuse that comes with circulation in the economy.
These 1 Pound Bullion Copper Loaf Bars available on Silver.com come with the popular elemental design on the obverse. You’ll find the Copper square from the Periodic Table of Elements at the top of the design on this face. Included is the atomic weight, number, and symbol (Cu) for copper.
Additional markings on this face of the bar include the weight, purity, and metal content of the loaf bar. The nation of production is marked as “USA” in between two large stars. These loaf bars are produced through traditional cast-pouring techniques, rather than modern, mechanized ingot striking.
Each of these 1 Pound Bullion Copper Loaf bars has a rustic finish, with unrefined edges, no reverse markings, and a matte finish that reminds the viewer of gold and silver bars from yesteryear.
