Perhaps the personification of the need for the 2nd Amendment, the minuteman is featured on the Minuteman 2nd Amendment 1 oz Copper Round. The minutemen were ready to defend the colonies against the tyranny of the British Empire. This round is made from 1 AVDP ounce of .999 fine copper. This is a perfect gift for anyone who loves, respects, or honors the 2nd amendment and any gun owners.
- Made of 1 AVDP ounce .999 fine copper
- Minted at the Osborne Mint, Cincinnati, Ohio USA
- Obverse side has an eagle and the words “We the people will protect our 2nd Amendment”
- The reverse side has the verbiage of the 2nd Amendment
Since the 2nd Amendment was ratified in 1791, there have been calls to curtail it, change it or even overturn it. This is one of the fundamental rights that was spelled out in the constitution. Time and time again the courts have been called on to defend it. One example is in 2008 in the case of District of Columbia v Heller, the Supreme Court ruled that individuals in the home have the right to defend themselves. Another example is in 2010 in the case of McDonald v City of Chicago when the Supreme Court ruled that local and state governments are no different than the Federal government when it comes to infringing on the 2nd amendment.
The obverse of the round shows a ‘Minuteman’, so called for their charge to be ready in a minute’s time to go defend the colonies against the ‘redcoats’. Here the minuteman is dressed as the minuteman might look, pretty much like a farm boy. There is one glaring difference in this design, he isn’t holding a 1700’s top-loading musket. He has in his hands a modern-day assault rifle. Above his head is ‘The 2nd Amendment’. At the bottom is ‘SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED’.
On the reverse side of the round is written ‘2nd Amendment’ at the top in a script font. Below is the verbiage of the amendment. At the bottom edge left side is ‘.999 FINE CU’. At the bottom right side is ‘1 AVDP OZ’. At the bottom center is the Osborne Mint mark.
This Minuteman 2nd Amendment 1 oz Copper Round is a round that makes a powerful statement. This round would be a wonderful gift for anyone who supports the 2nd amendment. Get yours today.
