ABOUT THIS COIN: The 12 Labors of Hercules Series
Hercules became an icon by conquering man-eating beasts during far-reaching expeditions. Wherever he traveled, his legend grew, forging his place in history as the most famous and beloved hero of ancient times.

Hercules' latest journey led him to Provident Metals, where he can defend your wealth with a bullion collection dedicated to the 12 Labors of Hercules.

The 12 Labors were celebrated on individual 1 oz pieces composed of .999 silver and copper to which I am the lucky recipient of both and to be clear, this ad is for the 1oz .999 Pure Copper Round which can be plated in many precious metals as listed above or in the options section to your right.

The 1 oz Labor rounds were released once per month beginning Sept. 12 with the Nemean Lion. These 12 copper and silver bullion rounds will each be available for purchase for one month ONLY-- until the 12th of the following month, when there will be one day of overlap between rounds. Upon conclusion of sales for each round, a mintage will be published.

The series ended in September 2015 and because no more are being made, the value has skyrocketed ever since.

In steps Patriot Coin Rings. I take these beautiful mint pieces and forge them under fire till the coin is turned inside out and a beautiful ring custom made to your size with your preference of finish or precious metal is completed. I've been making rings for over 8 years now and proceeds are donated to our disabled vets as I'll discuss below at the end of this description. Please feel free to look at my feedback to feel secure you are working with the best and supporting a great cause at the same time.

If I could give one recommendation to this it would be to get it protected by our Hypoallergenic Clear Coat Process that puts a thick clear shell over it because where my other rings have faded with time, I've now owned this ring for over 4 years and to date it still looks as nice as the day I made it. For more information on that add-on service, click the link here...

ABOUT THE RING: The was made with very pronounced etchings/stamping which allows for a gorgeous finish after being folded into a perfect coin ring of your size and specs in your choice of It's pure natural Copper Mirror finish, Aged Patina finish (which creates a darker, almost black outline in the background), 24K Gold Plating as photographed above in this ad or many other precious metal finishes that you'll find in the options link to the right. This ring will receive a FREE Jewelers Clear Coat which is very thin and resistant to fade, crack, peel or discolor however nothing is permanent and all rings regardless of what it's made of in it's composition or finish should be treated as it is, a fine piece of jewelry. If you feel you could use additional protection against the elements, sweat, moisture and such, I do recommend our unique blend of Hypoallergenic Transparent Powder Coating which is "Baked on" (not painted). This is the very same method used on automotive race engines, car wheels, motorcycle frames and such for it's hard coating however I've developed a blend specifically for my rings that really makes them last.

    Custom and personalized orders

    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).

    Care instructions

    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.

    Sizing details

    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, 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!

    How to proceed with Gold Plating Services (or other precious metals)

    The prices in the ad are based on plating a basic ring however I do plate many different items (not just jewelry).

    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.

    The ring arrived as shown and the quality is nice, but it’s the wrong size. I ordered a size 12 and initially on arrival when I tried it on thought I had incorrectly ordered a different size or that due to various factors my ring size was slightly off at the time I was trying it on. The ring was much larger than my others and fit loosely though. Additionally, while I suspected it was just a minor optical illusion the shape of the band appeared somewhat conical and I noticed when attempted to place it, it had a looser fit on the upper rim than the lower. I brought it to a jeweler to check and they also noticed the slight shape abnormality and when sizing the ring noted one end came out to 22mm and the other was 22.2mm. I ordered a size 12, but the ring that came is closer to a size 13.

    I have nothing but terrific things to say about this purchase. Delivery was fast and went without issue even though I'm international. Response times were quick and always pleasant. Michael answered all of my questions and went out of the way to make sure I was able to get exactly what I was looking for. The ring itself is gorgeous! I am beyond happy with how it turned out!
