Product Information

AMERICAN MINED, AMERICAN MADE. That is the motto inscribed on the obverse side of these copper bullion pieces. The motto alludes to the fact that before 1982 the copper used in US pennies was mined, smelted, and processed by American workers in the United States of America.  The alloy that was used is 95% copper and 5% zinc.  In 1982 the US Congress and Treasury switched the metal content of the penny to copper plated zinc, and outsourced the zinc metal supply to other countries, stripping them of both intrinsic and cultural value.

Shire Post Mint has "overstruck" a quantity of carefully sorted and selected copper cents, redefining them from currency to bullion. The reverse side is inscribed "1/10 ounce .950 copper" which alludes to the fact that the 3.1 gram weight of the copper cent is in fact equal to 1/10 troy ounce, the weight standard by which all precious metals are measured.
