Benjamin Franklin Half Dollar Silver Coin Ring
The Benjamin Franklin Coin Rings would make a great Fathers Day Gift! It's likely that Dad was a coin collector as a kid or at least has fond memories of getting one of these coins as a gift! This ring is double sided, meaning the coin detail is visible on the outer band and the inner band. I make these by hand from an original US Benjamin Franklin Half Dollar. These coin rings are available in Sizes 8 to 12. Please ask about larger or smaller sizes. The Franklin Half Dollar was minted during the 1940's, 50's and '60-'63. They are composed of 90% Silver - for comparison, Sterling Silver is 92.5%, so the properties are very similar. These coins have been circulated, so a magnified inspection may show some minor imperfections, but I do search for the best examples so that the artistic detail stands out. The ring is forged in fire and is finished with a smoky patina to enhance the appearance of the artist's rendering. The entire ring is then polished and antiqued. Please be certain of your ring size when ordering, each item is made to order specifically for you. We will accommodate resizing at no cost but you will be responsible for the return shipment costs. This treasure is sure to become an heirloom in your family and a great reminder of your heritage, wherever life's travels may take you.
