President William McKinley served as the country's 25th president from March 1897 through September 1901 before his assassination six months into his second term. Precious metals investors may have a particular soft spot for McKinley, who advocated for “sound money” policy, or the gold standard. He secured the Gold Standard Act in 1900.
McKinley is recognized on the $500 McKinley Federal Reserve 1 oz copper ingot at Provident Metals that is based off of the large-denomination bill created in 1934. Each ingot measures 1 ⅞ inch by 1 ⅛ inch and is ⅛ inch thick and features the obverse and reverse designs of the 1934 $500 McKinley Federal Reserve banknote.
President William McKinley stares out of the center of the obverse, while the reverse has the 500 “watermelon” design, so called because the large green oval resembled the sweet summer fruit.
Each ingot contains 1 oz of .999 fine copper and is manufactured in the United States. Only 20,000 pieces were minted worldwide, so demand is high among investors and collectors. Secure yours today through Provident Metals' online purchasing system before it's too late.
