Full Description

Made in the United States, the one ounce copper rounds were minted at the Osborne Mint; which holds the distinction of being America’s oldest private mint, and has over 30,000 different dies from their more than 250 years in the business.

Issued for circulation in Asia, the Silver Trade Dollar was mainly used for export demand. Many of the coins that were used in the Orient were counterstamped with Oriental characters, known as chop marks.

Copper rounds from the Osborne Mint, are satin frosted and polished to give the background a mirror-like finish, similar to the proof finishes of the U.S. Mint. Reeded edges, much like the U.S. quarter, are also a feature of the copper rounds.

Obverse
Featuring the original Trade Dollar design, the copper round shows a leftward facing Lady Liberty, seated atop bales of merchandise, with wheat and other various tools of the merchant trade at her back. In her left hand she holds a scroll, inscribed with the word “Liberty,” and in her right, she holds an olive branch. “In God We Trust” is shown below the image on a traditional looking banner.

Reverse
On the Reverse of the one ounce .999 copper round is a patriotic image distinct to the Osborne Mint. A waving american flag appears behind a star-and-stripe shield with “USA” inscribed below the image. The purity of the coin is shown above, with the weight appearing below.

Pure copper rounds, like the one ounce .999 Copper Round, Trade Dollar 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.
