Our series of stock rounds features designs derived from American coinage, US paper currency or images representative of the USA.
Silver certificates were issued by the United States as part of its circulating paper currency between 1878 and 1964. They had face values ranging from $1 to $1,000. They were redeemable for their face value in solid silver coins and for one year (June 1967-1968) they could be redeemed for raw silver bullion.
Our version takes the defining design details of the $1 certificate and transfers them onto a stock copper round. It features an eagle with widespread wings flanked by stylized "1"s, a silver certificate serial number and the words SILVER CERTIFICATE at the bottom. The round also shows the faces of Abraham Lincoln and Ulysses Grant at the bottom.
The reverse design notes the weight and purity of the copper under the words SILVER CERTIFICATE. The word "ONE" and the number "1" flank both sides with a background of psychedelic swirls.
Our rounds are die struck in Cincinnati Ohio, from .999 pure American copper with a minimum weight of 1oz AVDP per coin. They are struck with reeded edges like a US quarter and made coin flip.
Pure copper coins are sensitive to the oils on your fingers, so handle with gloves or by the edges if you want to avoid staining. We also recommend storing in a sulfur free environment, in pvc free tubes, flips or capsules.
