Despite its relative lack of visibility in the precious metals market, copper is one of the most in-demand precious metals in the 21st century. Copper prices have been on the rise, and its use across a variety of other industries makes copper bullion products a must-have for serious investors.
As a commodity, copper’s value and overall worth is a mirror opposite of the US dollar. When the dollar is strong, copper prices will sink. When the dollar is weak, copper prices will rise. However, recent years have seen copper remain in high demand because it is not used exclusively for precious metal production.
Copper was long-used in the production of circulation coinage in the US because of its corrosion resistance strength. Its conductivity and corrosion resistance continue to drive demand in numerous industrial sectors, specifically housing (think of copper wires and piping), which helps hold the value of copper higher because supplies are limited.
These 1 Pound Copper Bullion Cubes contain roughly 16 ADVP oz of pure copper, and make an excellent option for those looking alternatives to copper rounds and bars. Each one has a design on the top face of the cube that has been engraved with the full square and information from Copper’s place on the Periodic Table of Elements.
Included in the design is the atomic number of copper, 29, along with its standard atomic weight of 63.546, and its listing of Cu from the table. Other markings include the weight in ounces, the name “Copper,” and the melting point in Celsius of copper.
Copper bullion products are not weighed in the same measurements as gold and silver. You’ll notice that all Silver.com copper bullion products feature AVDP ounces. Known as Avoirdupois ounces, it was adapted from a French phrase that translated as “goods of weight.”
