The basic electrical and magnetic superconducting properties of the commercially available High-Temperature Superconductor (HTS) GdBCO coated conductor (CC) specimens were investigated by using both a four-probe method and a magnetometer magnetization method with a physical property measurement system (PPMS). The $H_{irr}(T)$ data in the region near the superconducting temperature $T_c$ coincided very well with the power-law relation $H_{irr}$ = $H_{irr}(0)(1-T/T_{c})^{n}$. Similarly, the $H_{c2}(T)$ data agreed well with the Bardeen, Cooper, and Schrieffer (BCS) type function $H_{c2}$ = $H_{c2}(0)[1-(T/T_{c})^{\alpha}]^{\beta}$ in the region near the $T_c$. On the other hand, the irreversible magnetic moment $\Delta m_{irr}$ was obtained by measuring the magnetic moment $m(H)$. The Bean model was applied to obtain the related superconducting current density, $J_c$, of the GdBCO CC. The magnetic flux behavior was investigated from the relationship $J_c \propto H^{-\delta}$. At temperatures near $T_c$, the value of $\delta$ when the magnetic field was parallel to the ab-plane of the specimen was two times greater than the value of $\delta$ when it was parallel to the c-axis, but the difference between the $\delta$ values gradually decreased as the temperature was decreased.
