We report the draft genome sequence of Pseudomonas psychrotolerans strain L19, isolated from a European 50-cent copper alloy coin. Multiple genes potentially involved in copper resistance were identified; however, it is unknown if these copper ion resistance determinants contribute to prolonged survival of this strain on dry metallic copper.
