Change to Treasures...
Some coins are over a hundred years old (at one time these coins were used as everyday pocket change). We choose each coin to make sure it will have great detail as a coin ring, paying special attention to preserving as much as the beautiful detail on each coin ring as possible - both on the outside as well as the inside.
No two coin rings are exactly the same. We use circulated coins on these orders and add patina to each ring to enhance the characteristics of each custom-made coin ring.
We can make special orders by request from uncirculated coins or other coins you may not see listed on our website. Use a coin you have on hand and let us make a custom-made coin ring.
Craftsmanship of Coin Rings...the Story!
Is it illegal to make coin rings from coins?
Q: Is it illegal to use coins to make coin rings (jewelry)? A: According to U.S. Department of the Treasury... “Is it illegal to damage or deface coins? Section 331 of Title 18 of the United States code provides criminal penalties for anyone who “fraudulently alters, defaces, mutilates impairs, diminishes, falsifies, scales, or lightens any of the coins coined at the Mints of the United States.” This statute means that you may be violating the law if you change the appearance of the coin and fraudulently represent it to be other than the altered coin that it is. As a matter of policy, the U.S. Mint does not promote coloring, plating or altering U.S. coinage: however, there are no sanctions against such activity absent fraudulent intent.”View
