In my opinion this is the best of all coin rings you could choose! It was the very reason I got into the hobby of handcrafting coin rings. The thought of taking a US Silver Dollar in Americas infancy and just considering the places or people it must have past through can make your mind truly wander in amazement. I would never destroy a true piece of history like this so I while I won't take a highly prized coin and convert it into a ring, I will hand select certain pieces where the detail of the "In God we Trust" written in Old English font, the detail of the American Eagle, the date and other details that encompass the coin are still in VG (Very Good) condition and then hand craft them into a beautiful piece of art that can be worn and shared as what always turns into a conversation piece among family, friends and anyone who sees it.

ABOUT THIS COIN:
In 1876, George T. Morgan began creating a series of new coin designs at the behest of Director of the Mint, Dr. Henry R. Linderman. Morgan opted to use the profile of an American girl to depict Liberty instead of simply creating an imaginary figure for the obverse of his new design. After he rejected several possible candidates, Morgan's friend, artist Thomas Eakins, recommended Anna Williams of Philadelphia. Eakins knew Williams through her father, Henry Williams. She reluctantly sat for five modelling sessions with Morgan in November 1876 after being convinced to do so by friends. Morgan was impressed with her profile, stating that it was the most perfect he had seen in England or America. The silver dollar bearing her likeness was first struck on March 11, 1878. A condition of her sitting for Morgan was that her identity be kept secret, but the subject of the portrait was revealed to be Williams shortly after the dollar was released. Williams was troubled by her newly acquired fame, receiving thousands of letters and visits at both her home and workplace. Williams preferred not to talk about her modelling work with Morgan, dismissing it as an "incident of my youth."
