This was brought up on CU by Cladiator.

 

What if the Mint did a .999 fine copper American Eagle? Would you buy one?

 

Personally I'd order a couple of each just for myself. Well struck copper is just..... :ninja:

 

I'd get one and watch it oxidize nicely over the years

Problem is the face value though. Since the silver bullion coins are of 1 dollar, well geez, what would the copper bullion ones be. Quarter? Dime? :ninja:

 

People on CU were suggesting 2 cents, to kind of honor the old 2 cent pieces. I think it'd be a cool idea.

Make it One Cent, and it would be the largest of the Large Cents ;)

I'd buy two ... one goes in an airtite, one goes on the windowsill :ninja:

The Denver mint did a Centennial Medal in 1976. I have one in silver and one in copper. If the design was better than average I'd certainly buy a couple. Who knows with copper going as high as it has been lately, it could be an investment.
