What can you do with coins you find?

Any of the coin collectors cannot imagine some their coins ending up as a piece of jewelry. But in any case, some people think so, and although there are fewer, there are still old ladies who keep the coins of their ancestors and they even make funds out of them. It’s quite nice that at the 40s or 50s it was very common to wear a pair of silver coins as your accessories. They were made either as collars, necklaces or even earrings.

Whilst mostly this comes from coin collectors I’m noticing more and more people who go out metal detecting to find theirs. I think this is so cool that you’re actually finding the materials yourself for any bracelet you make. My friend Richard sells cheap metal detectors, he actually lent me his old one. I didn’t get much luck personally but I imagine with practice that would be different. For the most part I just buy weird and wonderful things off eBay for mine!

There are still people who do such things, they get coins from the collectors or they find them themselves, which they later turn into jewelry with the equipment they possess. Of course, the value of the coin mostly defines the price of the piece as well. If you find or get a very old coin in good condition, your necklace or any other piece that you are planning to make, will be more valuable, especially amongst vintage jewelry enthusiasts.


Twenty or thirty years ago it was also typical to set a large silver coin and be done with it a keychain. They were typically hard silver coins and the sellers intended to make these pieces as unique as possible by combining different ones or making a long chain with the same valuable coins. Even though the rings of this kind are not very common, they are not impossible to see. People, who dedicate a lot of time to handmade jewelry, tend to move their limits and make new pieces constantly. That is how we can find wide rings with some valuable coin that reminds us of gem significance in other cases.

Again we must be clear: to have a coin in a ring, key ring or the anything alike reduces their numismatic value to zero in the vast majority of cases. So it is only recommended doing more common and poorly conserved parts. On the other hand, if you have one of these from our ancestors, you can save them and expect to find someone who will really value the worth of it. If someone is in love with this kind of jewelry and they really like the pieces you possess or the way you made them, they will not care too much about the price. Passion is the movement in these kinds of jobs and that is what adds the value to these rings, necklaces, bracelets, brooches and others.

If you love finding unique coins and you like metal detecting, collecting and similar activities, you might as well pay more attention to jewelry making as well. Like mentioned before, this hobby is more like a lifestyle and those who are determinate to have rare coins, live a specific way and  they value things more than just any ordinary person does. They know the important role of the past and they tend to maintain it and not let it get forgotten. This is why they love having jewels that will show everyone else what they like and what they are interested in. You can be the one making unique pieces with just a little bit of will to explore and find the perfect coins and creativity to make jewels out of them.
