Copper isn’t the first metal people think of when deciding on what to mint their custom coin or medal with. Gold and Silver seem to be the first thoughts we have when thinking of metals and elegance.
Copper however is warm, malleable, and it gives off a very antique feel that speaks to recent old and rustic history. Look at a coin made in copper when you have a chance. Its a very different antique feel then say, pewter, or textured silver isn’t it? There are very unconscious associations with copper and all of them seem to relate to warm past scenes that make us want to be there. It’s a great option for historical and restoration societies.
