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.

Designed by sculptor Hermon A. MacNeil during the middle of World War I, the design features Liberty in a politically relevant pose for the time. The Standing Liberty design replaced the Barber quarter, which had been minted since 1892. The design underwent several changes, some made without MacNeils permission, but the one featured on the copper coin is the final version of the design.


Shown on the Obverse of the coin is Lady Liberty walking through a gate, with an inscription on the wall showing “In God We Trust.” MacNeil had designed Liberty facing East, towards the battles raging in Europe, with a shield protecting her as she clutches an olive branch in her other hand. The artist says of his design that Liberty is seen “stepping forward in...the defense of peace as her ultimate goal.”


A version of the Gobrecht Dollar minted from 1836 until 1839 appears on the Reverse of the .999 Copper Round. MacNeil designed the eagle facing the other direction to the original design, and splayed the wings of the majestic creature more to create room for the coins inscriptions. On this coin, the lettering is dedicated towards showing the weight, and purity of the coin.

Pure copper rounds, like the one ounce .999 Copper Standing Liberty 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.
