This Blog Will Be Continued at New Location

Rather than trying to keep two separate Blogs active and updated, this Blog will be continued at my new location which is a part of my main Ross Coin Rings website.

The new location for all my Blog postings will be here.

Please stop by my new location and continue reading my Ross Coin Ring postings over there. Thanks a lot.

What is the smallest size coin ring you have seen?

 Quite frankly the smallest size coin rings you generally see are those sized for a woman or a child. Many of those range from about a 2.5 to a 5 or 6.  It is possible to fabricate a US Quarter down to a 5 or 6, but if you need a size smaller than that, I generally recommend starting with a smaller coin - like a dime or a penny.

The other day I was wondering just how small I might be able to forge a coin ring, and still have it look fairly nice. I started with a US Dime (clad), and although I had to resort to using some special tools I do not generally use - I was able to produce a pretty nice coin ring that is "almost" a Size 0 (zero).  It actually turned out to be a Size 1/4.

You can see it and many of the other coin rings I make, at my website and in my store. Stop by and check out all of my coin rings and leave me a comment if you so desire.
