1959 Half Crown


Today I have completed a 1959 Half Crown ring for a friend.

As the coin itself was made of Copper-nickel, it would need to be coated on the inside in order to prevent the ‘greening’ of the skin after prolonged wearing.

Once the coin was transformed into a ring, I powder-coated it in black and then carefully sanded the high areas to reveal the lettering and design, then the whole piece was given a light dusting of clear powder coat to seal the ring and give it some protection.

and yes, 1959 is the year of his birth
