Make a coin ring

In this video, Bre Pettis of MAKE magazine uses an anvil, a hammer, a drill, and a dremel to make a ring out of a half dollar coin. This project requires use of a coin from before 1964 because half dollars and quarters were made of almost 90% silver and are able to be molded.

Besides being blindingly pretentious, this is a really cool video.... But i wish there was some better way to make the ring, while still preserving more of the coin's features... Otherwise what's the use of making a coin ring, if no one can tell that it was a coin?

I have made lots of coin rings and started making them as a hobby. You can check out the photos at
