Copper may be a relative newcomer in the world of valuable collectible bullion, but this ancient metal has been revered among some of the world’s first, and mightiest civilizations. Today, the precious metal of copper is increasingly popular among precious metal investors, and collectors. Copper is believed by some to have been originally discovered around the year 9000 BC, somewhere in the Middle East.
Not only do newcomers to the precious metals community find copper an excellent metal to purchase, precious metal veterans also purchase copper to diversify their portfolio of metal assets. Copper bullion, copper bars, and coins, represent an easy and inexpensive way to purchase and own precious metals. Copper bullion is available in high quality bars, coins, art bars, rounds, ingots and other various forms.
Copper, like gold and silver, has experienced significant growth over the last few years. As economic uncertainty continues, "survivalists" are looking to commodities like gold, silver and copper bullion to safeguard the value of their wealth, as a possible currency of the future.
Copper is a chemical element with symbol Cu (from Latin: cuprum) and atomic number 29. It is a soft, malleable and ductile metal with very high thermal and electrical conductivity. A freshly exposed surface of pure copper has a reddish-orange color. It is used as a conductor of heat and electricity, as a building material and as a constituent of various metal alloys, such as Sterling silver used in jewelry, cupronickel used to make marine hardware and coins and constantan used in strain gauges and thermocouples for temperature measurement.
In terms of contemporary value, copper has enjoyed some considerable upswings in price that have garnered the attention of the investment community. The base metal started off the 21st century trading at under $1/lb while over the next 10 years it would continue to rise and top off at around $4.50/lb. Demand for copper has likely been one of the main causes. Since the metal is used in most parts of our infrastructure, as well as the medical field and many areas of industry, as we further develop our technologies demand is expected to only rise.
