Prospector Copper Round
These Prospector Copper rounds are produced by Provident Mint in Dallas. The Provident Mint is a private mint, and one of the only private mints that is certified to produce gold and Copper bars and rounds that are IRA eligible. They are known for their many designs, one of the best known being the Prospector. This mint only uses bullion from a London Bullion Market Association approved vendor within the United States. Designs from this private mint tend to be highly detailed and of obvious quality.

1 oz. .999 Fine Copper
Each of these rounds from the Provident Mint contains 1 Troy oz. of .999 fine Copper. That is the same level of purity that can be found in the majority of government issued Copper bullion coins, including the American Copper Eagle. Since this mint uses bullion purchased from a LBMA approved vendor and the facility is ISO9001 certified, the purity and weight of these rounds is sure to meet or exceed the standards given.

Copper Rounds
When a blank is struck by a government mint, it becomes a coin. When a blank is struck by a private mint, it becomes a round.

A large price difference between government issued Copper coins and privately minted Copper rounds is in the amount of premium that is added to the cost. Typically, purchasing Copper rounds as opposed to government issued Copper coins will allow you to purchase more Copper for the same amount of money. That is the main reason that some bullion buyers prefer rounds.

However, when purchasing Copper rounds it would be prudent to select one that is easily recognized. This makes the round easier to sell or trade when the time comes. As mentioned, the Prospector design from Provident Mint is one of the most well-known designs.

Prospector Design
The front of this fine Copper Prospector round displays a prospector standing before his mule with a pickaxe and gold pan. The rugged pair are standing at the bottom of a Western looking canyon. This design is finely detailed. The texture of the rocks and soil can be seen clearly, as well as every fold and wrinkle in the prospector’s clothes and boots. Even the muscles of the mule’s shoulder can be seen with a closer look. This side of the round reads “PROSPECTOR.”

The reverse of the 1 oz. Prospector round displays a few of the weathered adventurer’s tools. Placed on a wooden table or floor is a map, with a compass and sextant on top of it. The grain of the wooden surface in the background can be seen with lucid clarity. This side is inscribed with the words “ONE TROY OUNCE,” and “.999 FINE COPPER.”

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Do you ship anywhere in the World?

    Yes, excluding Russia and certain regions of Africa at this time.

    Custom and personalized orders

    I LOVE MAKING CUSTOMIZED RINGS! Yes, we "specialize" in making nearly any kind of ring according to our customer's specifications. Simply message me here and I'll provide a quote based on the requirements of your custom-designed ring(s).

    Care instructions

    While there are some very tough rings that can put up with a lot of abuse like Titanium or Tungsten, all jewelry regardless of price requires some common sense TLC and in most cases it should be a habit to remove your ring prior to taking a shower, washing your hands, using hand sanitizer or lotion, swimming or while working that requires heavy hand to machinery contact or anything that would simply be abrasive. If you have any concerns, simply ask about your specific ring and ask about our hyposealer which is an additional protective coating that can be applied to help protect and prevent oxydation.

    Sizing details

    Because I actually hand make these rings myself, I can often offer them in all sizes including extremely small to very large ie. US Sizes 1-25 and as fine-tuned as much as a quarter of a size on most rings. If you don't see the size you require, please message me. I often can still do it for you!

    Yes, all rings $40 or more automatically are shipped in a beautiful ring box FREE OF CHARGE!
    If you need a ring box for something less expensive, just let me know and I'll still do it for free 😍

    Wholesale availability

    If you are looking to buy rings, services or our precious metal plating in bulk, contact me before making your purchase, and let's discuss what you have. In many cases, I do offer discounted pricing to customers with bulk item requests.

    Do you give Military Discounts?

    Yes, anyone with an honorable discharge DD214 or active duty card as well as any first responders (firefighters, officers, medical field) that can provide proof (ie. an ID with the same name as the person purchasing the item) will receive 15% OFF the regular price. If an item is already on sale, I don't consolidate discounts and coupons so we would just look for the discount that gives you the largest savings and I thank you for your service!

    How to proceed with Gold Plating Services (or other precious metals)

    The prices in the ad are based on plating a basic ring however I do plate many different items (not just jewelry). The very first thing is to contact me direct and provide a photo(s) preferably next to a dollar bill for size comparison. I don't charge my customers until "AFTER" the job is completed so PAY NOTHING UPFRONT! Simply contact me for my address, instructions and a quote.

    Do you plate anything other than rings?

    Yes, all the time! In fact, other than all kinds of costume jewelry, antiques, and more I'm contracted by many companies for all kinds of crazy things like drone parts, car parts, emblems, medallions, electronic parts, and so much more! Our Gold plating services extend far beyond just rings, bracelets, necklaces, watches, and pendants. Further, I plate in Vermeil or Gold Filled as well making our plating up to 8x times thicker than standard gold plating. Message me here and let's just chat a bit about what you have and get you a custom quote today. I typically answer in just a matter of a couple of hours in most cases.
