How to Make a Hex Coin Ring!

We’ve featured a post on how to make a coin ring before, here’s another great article showing you how to make a hex coin ring out of coins of course.

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: Hammer, Anvil, 3/8″ bolt/nut, Drill bit or uni-bit or dremel, 220 grit sandpaper, silver polish compound, drill, 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.

    I really like the Hex design. Having made many coin rings I know how difficult that design really is. The tapping method of making a coin ring is the old method. Now days the double sided coin ring with the detail of the coin preserved is prefered.

    @Ron, Do you know of a tutorial for making a double sided coin ring with the detail of the coin preserved? Or could you explain it to me? I’d really love to make one! Thanks.
