As with everything in Torah, there is a powerful message to be learned from the fact that the Torah specifies these three materials. Each of these metals illustrates a type of relation a Jewish person has with G-d and spirituality.
"Gold" relates to those people who at one time were completely immersed in materialism, but have since overcome their desires and now live a more lofty life. "Silver" are those of us who are not fazed by the negativity of the mundane world, but are able to view the world through a divine prism; sensing G-dliness in everything. And "copper" are those Jews who are in the midst of a daily struggle between a materialistic life or a more spiritual life.
The fact that Torah requires all three of these metals, shows that G-d wants the unique, individual service of all of us. Even those who struggle with their relationship with the divine, need to realize that their struggle is precious, and only when we are all united as one people, can we truly build a house worthy for G-d to dwell amongst us.
