BERSERKER VIKING hand forged "1oz Solid 9999 Silver Coin Ring* Norseman, Norwegian, Danish, Iceland (US Ring Sizes 4-25)

$155.96 $194.95



This is a VERY RARE COIN and at this time I have only 2 (unless sold since the time I'm writing this). They are extremely hard and expensive to come by which is sad because the high relief minting and detail on this coin is absolutely perfect for a coin ring craftsman like myself. The detail comes out so incredibly clear and detailed it's amazing!

Although being called a "Hobo Nickel", this is not really a nickel as it's stamped on the coin but rather a ring made from a large 1 Troy Ounce .9999 Solid Silver Bullion Round stamped in Viking imagery. Being a high-relief coin, this ring has some seriously strong detail to it! These large coins are often dubbed "Hobo-Nickels" which were derived from the depression era when Hobos use to take common coins like nickels and with a pocket knife or nail widdle away at them to create a completely different image or drawing than was originally minted in order to sell or trade for more than it was worth at that time.

Regarding this coin, probably the most feared of all Norse Vikings, In the Old Norse written corpus, berserkers were those who were said to have fought in a trance-like fury believed to get their power and fighting ability from the Bear, a characteristic which later gave rise to the modern English word berserk (meaning "furiously violent or out of control"). Berserkers are attested to in numerous Old Norse sources.

This Hobo or Challenge Coin is minted in solid .9999 (99.9% Pure Silver) and hand-forged from it's coin shape into a ring to wear in the finish of your choosing.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Do you ship anywhere in the World?

    Yes, excluding Russia and certain regions of Africa at this time.

    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!

    Gift wrapping and packaging

    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 😍

    Wholesale availability

    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.

    Do you give Military Discounts?

    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). 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.

    Do you plate anything other than rings?

    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.

    Amazing experience. Patriot Coin answered all my questions, did an amazing job on the ring, and shipped it promptly. Add to that you’re supporting a great cause. Already gotten a bunch of compliments. Would purchase again.
