Crafted in our signature ring mold, this ring is inspired from hobo nickels, a form of coin art with origins in the early 20th century.
In the early 1900s, a new form of art began to appear on American coins. Hobo nickels, as they came to be called, were hand-carved coins that featured intricate designs. The artists who created these works of art used a variety of techniques, including engraving, embossing, and inlaying.
Many hobo nickels featured images of famous people, such as presidents and other public figures. Others depicted scenes from nature or daily life. As the popularity of hobo nickels grew, more and more people began to collect them.
Today, hobo nickels are highly prized by collectors. While their origins may be humble, these unique coins are now considered works of art.
