Copper rounds are gaining in popularity among precious metal collectors and investors. Compared to gold and silver products, copper rounds are much more affordable for the average investor. The variety of available designs helps boost the popularity of copper products among collectors, as well. Today, the 1 oz Incuse Indian Copper Round is available from JM Bullion.
- Individual rounds ship in plastic flips, multiples of 10 – 20 ship in tubes, and multiples of 500 ship in boxes.
- Contains 1 AVDP ounce of .999 pure copper.
- Design inspired by the famous Incuse Indian Gold Coins from the United States Mint.
- Originally appeared on gold coins from 1908 to 1929.
- Privately minted in the United States.
The Incuse Indian design first appeared in 1908 on US gold coins with denominations of $2.50 and $5.00. The design was the first ever from the United States Mint to feature a sunken, or incuse, striking of images on the coin’s obverse and reverse faces.
On the obverse face of the original coins was the left-profile portrait of a Native American chieftain, complete with inscriptions that included 13 stars, the word “Liberty,” and the year of issue for specific coins. The reverse featured the American bald eagle atop a quiver filled with arrows and surrounded by an olive branch. Engravings on this side read “United States of America,” “E Pluribus Unum,” and “In God We Trust.”
Many of these design features are included on the 1 oz Incuse Indian Copper Round. On the obverse you’ll find the Incuse Indian design, complete with the 13 stars and the word “Liberty.” Rather than various years of issue, these copper rounds feature the year of issue, “1911.”
The reverse of each copper round bears some of the engravings from the original coins along with the bald eagle design. “E Pluribus Unum” and “In God We Trust” remain, but the face value is replaced along the bottom with “1 ounce .999 fine copper.”
Each of these 1 oz Incuse Indian Copper Rounds are produced at private minting facilities in the United States of America.
