It’s hard to find a good ring for men that’s not your typical silver or gold band. Other options are usually made from a precious metal but can run you hundreds of dollars. So when we came across these beautiful rings made from historic coins by Capital Coin Rings, we were excited about the prospect of having something unique.
Capital Coin Rings is ran by couple William and Kymm who have been collecting silver half dollars and old coins for years. They’ve amassed a collection of 1903 quarters from the year the Wright Brothers first flew and we had our first World Series, as well as half dollars from 1861 commemorating the Civil War. After stockpiling these rings for safe-keeping and reaching past them every day, they finally decided to do something with all of them. The challenge though was to create something out of them while preserving the details of the coin.
After months of trial and error, they have been able to make a ring that loses no detail from either side of the historic coin showing the original image and displaying the year on the band. Each ring is handmade and goes through a special patina process to make the details of the coin shine. So far these rings have been hugely popular with history buffs but we think most men can appreciate their attention to detail here. If you decide to get one, let William and Kymm know you agree.
