Copper Has a Long History as Money of the Common Man

Copper Has a Long History as Money of the Common Man

Monday we had what can be termed as a “soft launch” of the Store.  There are now 21 different copper rounds available in the store and we are shipping them with in two business days of them being ordered.

These coins are all official AOCS barter currency with a barter unit value of 2.  They are also great for spreading the message about honest money, pepping, the second amendment and many other awesome topics.

Of course the flagship of our store is the TSP Copper Rounds with Val on the front with the moral compass that keeps preppers on track with Honor, Courage, Strength and Knowledge. There are some really great rounds as well though.

My personal Top 5 Favorites Are…

The best part is all MSB members can now get 10% off all copper at  This makes the best priced store I can find for AOCS Copper rounds.

Currently there are no Silver or Gold rounds available, we will be adding them in the future and yes, MSB will get a special deal on them.  It likely won’t be 10% as the margins on silver and gold are very thin but we will do something for our MSB Members on those items as well.

The discount code for the copper store is now in the benefits section of your Members Area.

  1. Jack,
    Bought a roll of “Who is John Galt” rounds! How awesome is that? Looking forward to the TSP silver.

  2. Couldn’t get the site to apply my MSB discount??

  3. Discount worked for me. Looking good Jack.

  4. Questioning...

    Am I mistaken that the prices are roughly 36.00 per 20 ounces? I thought copper generally traded for a couple bucks per pound, spot price anyway. Obviously minting costs some money, but I’m lost to what the value of these coins are. If I can purchase a silver round for 38 bucks or so, or 20 oz of copper for the same price, and melt value of the silver is 38 bucks, and melt on the copper is maybe 6 bucks – what did I gain by purchasing the copper?

    I may just not be understanding the purpose. Can someone fill me in?

      This was covered in depth in Episodes 866 and 867. Let me just say though that the premium over spot per coin is LOWER with copper. Additionally AOCS and other copper rounds are selling right no on eBay for 1.75-2.25 per coin, damned if I understand why when you can get them from AOCS at 1.70 and down. The key is though there is a secondary market established where one could sell ones copper coins for what they paid for them or more the next day with no movement in the metal price or even if the price drops. Try that with silver, if you buy silver today and it goes up 1 dollar an ounce tomorrow you are still likely to take a small loss selling it to a dealer.

      My advice is go listen to the first part of 867 where I cover this in more detail and if you can show me how to produce copper coins for ANYTHING remotely approaching spot pricing I am all ears!
