Copper has been used to make jewelry since the 8th century BC and is a popular choice for mixing with precious metals like gold. Copper also possesses unique properties that allow it to conduct electricity better than other metals. In fact, copper has even been used to make transistors!

The price of copper is a good barometer of the global economy, earning it the moniker of ‘Dr Copper’. It is widely considered as a leading indicator of inflation and interest rates. In the 1970s, the Copper/Gold ratio plunged as inflation soared and markets lost faith in central bankers’ ability to control it.

Today, the ratio is relatively stable. However, some observers are concerned that the current downturn could signal a return to the stagflationary trends of the 1970s.

Investors are increasingly concerned about the strength of the global economic recovery and its sustainability, and that may be one of the reasons that the Copper/Gold Ratio has been flattening out.

Alloys with greater than 50 atomic percent gold are typically corrosion resistant. This makes them ideal for a wide range of applications, including aerospace, medical, automotive, chemical processing and more.

American Elements produces a variety of copper gold alloys, ranging from rod and wire to sheet and foil. These products can be provided in most standard grades, such as Mil Spec (military grade), ACS, Reagent and Technical Grade, Food, Agricultural and Pharmaceutical Grade, USP and EP/BP (European Pharmacopoeia/British Pharmacopoeia). All products are produced to stringent quality standards with certifications to meet customer specifications.
