This privately minted 1 oz copper round honors one of the United States’ most recognized circulating coins, the Lincoln Head Penny. While the actual Lincoln Head Penny is made of 95% pure copper, this 1 oz commemorative round boasts a much higher copper purity of 99.9% . Consequently, its exceptional level of purity makes it the ideal bullion piece for those wishing to make a substantial investment in the base metal.
- Consists of one ounce of .999 copper.
- Features the iconic right-profile portrait of President Abraham Lincoln.
- Inspired by historic American penny designs.
- Available in new condition from the mint.
- Individual rounds ship in plastic flips, multiples of 10 – 20 ship in tubes, and multiples of 500 ship in boxes.
Each copper round ships in brand new, mint condition and is encased in either its individual protective sleeve, or its original tube of 20. Because every round is procured from its original minting source, customers can place their orders in full confidence that they are receiving an authentic pure copper collectible. Please be advised, however, that even though these rounds look like the U.S. Lincoln Head Penny, they are not deemed as legal tender.
On the front of the round is artist Victor Brenner’s portrait of our nation’s 16th President, Abraham Lincoln. From his iconic beard to his chiseled features, great care has been taken to capture each detail of his distinguished profile. Such skillfully engraved details mimic the penny’s original portrait flawlessly. Then, serving as an accent to this lifelike image are a pair of wheat stalks that appear on opposite sides of his profile. They represent the president’s upbringing in the rural areas of Kentucky. Lastly, engraved at the top of the round are the words, “E Pluribus Unum” in honor of his attempts to unify the nation.
The reverse side of the coin features a stylized version of the Union that appears on the reverse side of the present day penny. In this unique rendition, the shield is depicted with a pair of wings, which it uses to soar above the nation’s initials and an unfurling scroll. Standing above the shield is the inspiration for its design, the US flag. As a final touch to the round’s patriotic motif, a series of six stars appear along the round’s border along with its weight and purity.
With its detailed engraving and 99.9% purity, the 1 oz Lincoln Head Copper Round is a charming collectible that is certain to become a prized part of any collection.
