Very Rare, No longer Available (not in circulation)!
The Niue 2017 Guardian Angel $1 Silver Coin really caught my eye when I found it through my coin provider as it displayed a beautiful depection of a guardian angel watching over a child with doves. I had to have the coin and picked it up back around February 2017 but only just now got around to making a ring out of it. Sadly I can't seem to find the .999 Pure Silver Coin anywhere but will continue to look. All I could find is it is no longer in circulation but pretty sure if I find it, the silver coin dollar will probably be much higher than I originally paid (around $40 for the coin alone). With much care I have hand crafted this beautiful coin into a ring that I'm sure will have some deep meaning for many and although I show it displayed in an "Antiqued Patina" finish, I can also convert it to a pure silver finish, 24K Gold Plating or Rose Gold Plating as well - the choice is yours.
Here's a bit more information about the coin itself...
The 2017 Guardian Angel $1 Silver Coin is the first issue in a planned series of annual Guardian Angel-themed coins made of one troy ounce actual silver weight (ASW) of 99.9% pure (.999 fine) silver.
As part of its partnership with the Government of Niue, the inaugural issue of this coin was limited to a maximum mintage of 100,000 pieces. The 2017 Guardian Angel was struck at the New Zealand Mint, which has a long history of working with Niue.
THE 2017 GUARDIAN ANGEL .999 FINE SILVER COIN
Legal tender in Niue, the obverse features the famous fourth portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II facing right, as designed by Raphael “Ralph” Maklouf. Starting from the left side of the coin, the inscriptions ELIZABETH II, NIUE and the face value of ONE DOLLAR wrap around the rim clockwise. Beneath the truncation of Her Majesty’s bust is the year of issue, 2017.
The reverse feature the eponymous angel wrapping the bottom of her wings protectively around a boy. She appears to be comforting him as much as she is protecting him, and the child’s expression and body language reveal worry but also relief as he looks up at his guardian. A dove in mid-flight is seen to either side of the duo. The inscription GUARDIAN ANGEL curves along the top of the side, while the purity and weight are found along the bottom rim. A representation of the Sun, replete with a multitude of sharp rays not unlike those found on another numismatic expression of hope, Augustus Saint-Gaudens‘ classic $20 double eagle gold coin, rises from a billowy cloud behind the two figures.
Both obverse and reverse are manufactured with a Proof-like field.
The 2017 Guardian Angel silver coin has a reeded edge.

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.

I am blown away! Customer support and truly personal service is top notch and unmatched. Michael was responsive to a point that we were collaborating in near real time. The quality of the ring is amazing, beautiful and more than I could have imagined. Pictures do not do this ring justice, really great detail emphasized by the light patina finish. Love the weight and the overall quality....just thrilled to have found PatriotCoinRing. PLUS, a portion of the proceeds support our veterans! I highly recommend this merchant if you want great, personal customer service and a fantastic, quality product. Thanks a million Michael.
