We've all seen the silver rings made out of coins, and some of us have tried it out. Well i wanted to be a little different, i wanted a hex shaped coin ring.
Step 1: Step 1
Step 1. This whole process can be done with a hammer, an anvil, and a 3/8" bolt and nut. A more complete list of tools are as follows:
Drill bit or uni-bit or dremel
220 grit sandpaper
silver polish compound
clean rag for polishing
I made myself a small rig for this project so i could easily hold and rotate the coin, but this is not a must.
You'll also need to find a pre 1965 half dollar. 1964 was the last year for 90+% U.S. coins.
Start by lightly hitting the coin on the edge and then rotating the coin using the hex nut as a guide for how far to rotate.
