Opsgear is pleased to offer Osborne Mint's Minuteman design on a pure copper round. These beautifully made rounds weigh one standard (avoirdupois) ounce and are shipped in mint tubes containing 20 rounds.
ABOUT THE DESIGN
The Second Amendment to the United States Constitution protects Americans' individual right to keep and bear arms. It was ratified on December 15, 1791, along with nine other articles of the Bill of Rights.
The right to keep and bear arms is a natural right of free people, but it is legally grounded in English common law. American founders were influenced by the English Bill of Rights of 1689. Sir William Blackstone described this right as an auxiliary right, supporting the natural rights of self-defense and resistance to oppression, and the civic duty to act in concert in defense of the state.
The round's obverse features a Minuteman standing upon a lookout and ready to go with a modern rifle. The text reads "The 2nd Amendment" and "Shall Not Be Infringed".
The reverse is stamped with language directly from the US Constitution. It reads "The 2nd Amendment" and "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shat not be infringed."
These solid copper rounds are die-struck in Cincinnati Ohio, from .999 fine copper with a minimum weight of 1 AVDP (not troy) ounce per coin.
