Although not classified as a precious metal, copper is a popular option for those who invest in metals such as gold, silver, and platinum.

Copper is considered a commodity rather than a precious metal, but that viewpoint may be changing. Metals such as gold, silver, platinum, and palladium are viewed as precious metals due in large part to rarity. Platinum and palladium, for example, have far less natural deposits than gold and silver. Copper has become so commercialized in its uses, however, that it is also becoming rare.
As copper becomes increasingly popular as a bullion investment option, it continues to be used in applications such as water piping in homes and electrical wiring. Copper rounds have proven a popular inroad for the promotion of copper bullion, with mints offer a wide array of design choices.
On the obverse face of the 1 oz Copper Christmas Manger Round is the image of a basic nativity scene. Joseph and his pregnant wife Mary returned to his hometown of Bethlehem to be counted in a census. As they arrived, they found no rooms available in any inns. They were offered a barn. It was here that Jesus came into this world to be its savior.
In the nativity, a humble barn is depicted with Mary and Joseph on either side of a small manger that held the newborn baby Jesus. Stars illuminate the sky overhead with the guiding North Star looming large as the Three Wise Men arrive to greet the young king.
The reverse side of Copper Manger Rounds includes a selection of snowflakes. As in real life, each one of these snowflakes is different than the other in both its exact shape and size, but also its details.
These 1 oz Copper Christmas Manger Rounds are available to purchase with protective plastic flips, mint tubes of 20 rounds, or mint-strapped cardboard boxes of 500 rounds. Each one is brand new and is satin frosted with a polished background field. The result is a round with frosted visuals and mirrored background fields.
