These are not pre-molded but rather I take this US Mint issued coin and under extreme fire I fold it inside out so all the details both front and back are perfectly intact just as the mint produced them. The coin to ring conversion is shaped to fit your size, side with reed preserved while the opposite polished to a beautiful smooth comfortable finish and then finished to your specifications in a mirror polished finish, antique patina (as seen in the photos), real 24k Gold, Platinum or Rose Gold plating as desired. If you have a preference, I can also make your ring in a dome style finish (aka fat tire sides) or flat wall (aka Swedish straight walls) - your choice. If you don't indicate what you would like, I'll just make it according to what I feel will look the nicest for your sized ring. This ring is completely custom made for you as you request and will be very unique and one of a kind.
The 2000 Leif Ericson Silver Dollar was issued by the United States Mint in cooperation with the Republic of Iceland. The commemorative coin program included a U.S. silver dollar and an Icelandic 1,000 kronur coin. Each coin depicted Leif Ericson to mark the 1,000th anniversary of his discovery of the New World. This ring is made from the coin as shown in the photo above.
The obverse of the U.S. coin features a portrait of Leif Ericson designed by John Mercanti in traditional Icelandic style. The inscriptions include “Leif Ericson”, “In God We Trust”, “Liberty”, and the year of issue “2000”. The reverse of the coin, designed by T. James Ferrell, depicts a Viking ship with Leif Ericson at the helm. The inscriptions include “Founder of the New World”, “One Dollar”, “E Pluribus Unum”, and “United States of America.”
Produced at the Philadelphia Mint. The US version carried the “P” mintmark, while the Icelandic version did not have a mint mark. The U.S. version of the coin was offered individually in uncirculated or proof. The Icelandic version was offered individually in proof. A two coin proof set was offered with each version of the coin. The maximum authorized production was 500,000 coins.
The coins were available for sale at the US Mint from June 21, 2000 to February 28, 2001. A surcharge added to the cost of each coin went to support the Leifur Eiriksson Foundation to fund exchange programs between the United States and Republic of Iceland.

I LOVE MAKING CUSTOMIZED RINGS! Yes, we "specialize" in making nearly any kind of ring according to our customer's specifications. Simply message me here and I'll provide a quote based on the requirements of your custom-designed ring(s).
While there are some very tough rings that can put up with a lot of abuse like Titanium or Tungsten, all jewelry regardless of price requires some common sense TLC and in most cases it should be a habit to remove your ring prior to taking a shower, washing your hands, using hand sanitizer or lotion, swimming or while working that requires heavy hand to machinery contact or anything that would simply be abrasive. If you have any concerns, simply ask about your specific ring and ask about our hyposealer which is an additional protective coating that can be applied to help protect and prevent oxydation.
Because I actually hand make these rings myself, I can often offer them in all sizes including extremely small to very large ie. US Sizes 1-25 and as fine-tuned as much as a quarter of a size on most rings. If you don't see the size you require, please message me. I often can still do it for you!
Yes, all rings $40 or more automatically are shipped in a beautiful ring box FREE OF CHARGE!
If you need a ring box for something less expensive, just let me know and I'll still do it for free 😍
If you are looking to buy rings, services or our precious metal plating in bulk, contact me before making your purchase, and let's discuss what you have. In many cases, I do offer discounted pricing to customers with bulk item requests.
Yes, anyone with an honorable discharge DD214 or active duty card as well as any first responders (firefighters, officers, medical field) that can provide proof (ie. an ID with the same name as the person purchasing the item) will receive 15% OFF the regular price. If an item is already on sale, I don't consolidate discounts and coupons so we would just look for the discount that gives you the largest savings and I thank you for your service!
The prices in the ad are based on plating a basic ring however I do plate many different items (not just jewelry). The very first thing is to contact me direct and provide a photo(s) preferably next to a dollar bill for size comparison. I don't charge my customers until "AFTER" the job is completed so PAY NOTHING UPFRONT! Simply contact me for my address, instructions and a quote.
Yes, all the time! In fact, other than all kinds of costume jewelry, antiques, and more I'm contracted by many companies for all kinds of crazy things like drone parts, car parts, emblems, medallions, electronic parts, and so much more! Our Gold plating services extend far beyond just rings, bracelets, necklaces, watches, and pendants. Further, I plate in Vermeil or Gold Filled as well making our plating up to 8x times thicker than standard gold plating. Message me here and let's just chat a bit about what you have and get you a custom quote today. I typically answer in just a matter of a couple of hours in most cases.

Did a great job love it!
Apr 20, 2018
My wife and I are both from the USA, but, met each other while we were each vacationing in Iceland. The night before she left for her trip, she opened a fortune cookie that read: "Go on a long voyage and receive unexpected gains". The next day when she arrived in Iceland, we met and hit it off immediately...one year later we were married. Now, many years after we first met and my wife sometimes remembering the fortune as having read: "...receive unexpected PAINS", we now have this beautifully crafted ring, as the ideal symbol of how we first met. Expertly crafted. Quickly shipped. A true gift to be handed down for generations. Thanks again Michael!

Michael does excellent work!! We wanted a coin ring for our Navy Chief hero and found this Icelandic coin, since our Chief is of Iceland descent. Michael did a superb job on the ring and our Chief is so impressed and happy with his ring. I would recommend to anyone, especially if you have a specific coin in mind. I also have to 5 star Patriot coins because Michael went to bat with the Post Office when the Post Office messed up a delivery for our coin. Thanks, Michael, once again, on a terrific one of a kind ring!
