Copper was first used by mankind in 8,000 BC, but it was not smelted from its ore until 3,000 years later. Copper was, in many ways, the first metal to mark mankind’s advancement. Not only was it the first metal used by humans, it was the first smelted, the first to be cast in shapes and molds, and the first to be alloyed with another metal on purpose, in the creation of bronze.
Today, copper is commonly found in homes and various other industries. A soft, malleable metal with high electrical and thermal conductivity, it was popular in the use of electrical wiring and water piping. It is also an essential metal to living organisms as a trace dietary mineral with trace respiratory enzyme complexes.
On the obverse face of the 1 Kilogram Copper Bullion Bar is the image of copper’s cube from the Periodic Table of Elements. Included in the design are the atomic number (29), symbol (Cu), and mass (69.55) of copper. Additional engravings include “1 Kilo,” “Copper,” “9995 Fine,” and “USA.”
The reverse face of the bar has no engravings. Both sides of the bar feature a rough, matte finish that give the bars a distinctive look and feel. Each of these bars is produced by a private mint in the United States. Every bar listed here with Silver.com is in varied condition.
