Benjamin Franklin Half Dollar Coin Rings are double sided, meaning the coin detail is visible on the outer band and the inner band. These coin rings are handmade from an original US Benjamin Franklin Half Dollar. These coin rings are available in Sizes 8 to 12 with an 8mm band width. 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 note that the antique polish isn’t completely permanent – it will wear over time to a patina that is unique to you.
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.
