Full Description

Made in the United States, the one ounce copper rounds were minted privately and are guaranteed to contain one-ounce of .999 fine copper.

The Morgan design was originally minted in the U.S. from 1878, until 1904, then once more in 1921, and replaced the Seated Liberty design. Silver dollar currency experienced a brief hiatus from 1873 to 1878, when the resumption of the coin was authorized by the Act of 1878, known as the Bland-Allision Act.

An English-man, George T. Morgan, designed the coin to resemble an American woman, rather than the typical Greco-Roman depictions of previously minted coins. In 1921 over 80 million Morgan Silver Dollars were minted after a 17 year hiatus in which the Pittman Act of authorized the U.S. to melt up to 350 million Silver Dollars, of which the U.S. melted over 270 million.

Obverse
On the Obverse of the coin, Lady Liberty is shown in profile facing left and wears a liberty cap with "Liberty" inscribed on the rim, and shows two cotton blossom, and two heads of wheat adorning the side of the cap. "E Pluribus Unim" appears above Liberties image, and 13 stars encircle the lower half..

Reverse
On the Reverse of the one ounce .9995 copper round is distinctly patriotic image showing an American eagle facing left, clutching a bundle of arrows, and olive branch, in front of a striped shield. A wreath encompasses the image and the insignia “In God We Trust” is shown above. The weight and purity of the coin are shown below.

Pure copper rounds, like the one ounce .999 Copper Morgan are sensitive to the oils of the human hand. GMR recommends handling your coins with gloves, or by the edges to avoid staining the surface. Store in a sulfur-free environment, like the pvc tubing, or capsules to ensure the longevity of your investment.
