More About The Trophy

The Copa America trophy contains 950 pieces of silver jewelry, which has been purchased from France for 3000 Swiss francs.

The jewelry store imported the base trophy from land of the Eiffel Tower and were a key component in crafting the original design and the final model.

In 1979, a wooden based was added to the trophy so that it accommodates another row to name the champions.

In 1995, a third row was added. The 2001 tournament saw the original trophy awarded to Colombia, who were the winners of the tournament.

From 2004 till 2021, different replicas have been used.
