If the Ears to the Ground cryo pod perk is active, there is a chance that a weapon or armor piece will be revealed. The item tier depends on Ryder's level when opening the box and matches the availability of found items. Materials will also be received, but the type and amount won't be displayed in the Rewards collection window.

Copper appears in both Bronze and Silver loot boxes, in the range of 4 to 20 units in Bronze boxes and in the range of 12 to 36 units in Silver boxes.
