The new copper bars from ProvidentMetals.com are an excellent way to invest in copper affordably! They are priced reasonably over the spot price per pound of copper. With "precious" metals prices on the rise, copper is often overlooked. However, many of us are aware of copper's industrial use. Once it's consumed, it is gone forever. Purely from a supply and demand perspective, it only seems to make sense that the price-per-pound of copper should continue to increase.
