RARE 1955-56 Egyptian 25 Qirsh Commemorative Piastres Coin Ring, 10-14 mm wide, .720 Silver, Anniversary, Birthday, Heritage Ring.

$179.95 $199.95

This ring converted from real Egyptian currency displays a beautiful "Uraeus Winged Sun of Thebes" (winged sun god with cobras). (from Egyptian Mythology and Egyptian Christianity by Samuel Sharpe, 1863) The winged sun is a symbol associated with divinity, royalty and power in the Ancient Near East (Egypt, Mesopotamia, Anatolia, and Persia).

Not only is it silver but this is a very rare coin and because of its scarcity there are a ton of fakes circulating out there. Typically 3 out of 4 coins ordered turn out to be fake which is really hard to detect until I've actually punched a hole in the center to turn it inside out. If it's real silver it'll come out perfect but the 75% of the time I find it's made of Zinc Alloy when it splits in half making this ring all the more expensive for me to make. If you purchase this ring I assure you it is 100% real and not a fake but the scarcity of finding this coin is what puts it on the pricey side however if you're the type who can appreciate having a really rare authentic coin converted especially for those wanting to where something of heritage, then this is an extremely popular ring to have!

This ring now comes with our very best "Hyposealer Powder Coating" guaranteed to prevent finger staining and preserve the finish of the ring FREE of charge (REG. $99 VALUE). and comes with a 3 Year Guarantee (read more here www.tinyurl.com/hyposealer ).

After being asked to task the job of finding the best Egyptian coin possible to convert into a coin ring I found this beautiful Egyptian 25 Qirsh Piastres (1376) 1955, 1956 or 1967 .720 Silver coin. What really stood out for me was the popular Egyptian Sun Wings and Cobras as popular as the scarab in the Egyptian culture, this was a massive part of Egyptian art history. Just as nice I found it came in the perfect size of 35mm in diameter and 17.5g of .720 Silver weight meaning it wasn't too heavy and yet not super thin or too light neither.

What I didn't realize was how hard it would be to find these coins as they are extremely scarce however I was able to get my hands on only a half dozen. On the first couple bands I made and experimented with I made one in a thin band cut at only 10mm wide compared to the widest at 14mm wide. Unless otherwise instructed I would choose the proper cut for your size ring but feel free to let me know if you prefer a thin or wide band and I'll certainly do what I can.

When ordering, be sure to note that the photos above are of the wide cut with a three tone silver and antique patina finish then the sun wings plated in 24k Gold and given another layer of antiquing (a very difficult process to do both) - do not confuse this with silver and gold only which has the absence of the antique patina (dark outlines) which is also available.

In addition to the rings photographed above, you'll find many options to choose from such as...
- Antique Patina (silver with the antique black oxidization)
- Precious Metals: 24k Gold, 999 Silver, Platinum, Rose Gold, White Gold, Rhodium and more!
- There is also a silver and gold two precious metal combo or the most popular one being a three tone ring in Antique Patina, 24k Gold and Silver! Hyposealer Powder Coat Protectant $99 Value is included FREE!
- If you want the same exact finish as you see in the photos above, be sure to ask if you aren't positive which option to choose.

WOW absolutely stunning ring. Exactly what I had hoped. I have purchased several rings from Michael and never been disappointed. This is my second unique ring from Patriot Coin Rings. Michael spent a lot of time and effort on making this ring. I got exactly what I wanted. Plus the proceeds help our vets.

Amazing quality and customer care. Also doing it all for a good cause!

This ring is so gorgeous and the craftsmanship is stellar. I would 100% recommend Michael’s work to anyone looking for a special ring that will make anyone happy.

I love my ring and had a good experience working with the shop owner. However, I ordered the ring gold plated. After receiving the ring the first time, the gold started coming off some within a week. I let the shop owner know and he offered to have me ship it back so he could fix it. He also gave me additional instructions on how to properly take care of the ring so it would not happen again. I have followed all instructions and unfortunately my ring has lost almost all of the gold plating around the outside as it is fading away. Inside of the ring still looks good but I am seeing some greenish coloring starting. This ring has never been in the shower or under any water or hand sanitizer and I only wear it to work or out. In short, If you order a ring from this shop, skip the gold plating. It's not worth it and doesn't last.

The ring looks amazing, exactly what I was looking for. Fast shipping and great communication, the fit is great and very comfortable with the comfort fit edges. Thanks!
