Inspired by the California Gold Rush of the late 1840s, the obverse features a rugged prospector holding a pickaxe and sifting pan. He stands in the rugged Sierra Nevada mountains next to a mule. The inscription “PROSPECTOR” is seen at the top. The design represents the innate human desire for prosperity and adventure.
The reverse features the classic scene of a sleepy Wild West town, complete with a saloon and hotel with horses hitched out front. An inscription reads “ONE OUNCE .999 FINE COPPER.”
Provident’s well-loved original series–featuring our most popular silver round ever–has recently been redesigned. Each Prospector round and bar is made from investment-grade silver or copper at an ISO 9001 facility, making these items eligible for a precious metals IRA. Additionally, the privately-minted Prospector products carry a lower premium than many sovereign-minted products. This allows savvy investors to maximize their buying power.
The Prospector 1 oz Copper Round is the inaugural and flagship product of the Prospector series. This series will expand to include multiple new designs within the Wild West theme. These subsequent releases may have limited releases or mintages. However, the Prospector 1 oz round will continue to be available in perpetuity.
Individual rounds ship in plastic flips. Multiples of 20 ship in plastic tubes and multiples of 500 ship in a strapped monster box. Add an Air-Tite to your order to protect your Prospector rounds.

" my favorite mint cant wait for next coin in prospector, and the next in the dragon series. my only disappoint was being late starting the 4 horseman of the appocolipse. I missed the white horse in antique finish. I did however get all 4 in silver as well as the 10 ounce. looking forward to the next dragon. have and will continue to recommend you to others, especially after they saw my purchases and their quality"
