This narrow band seamless ring for women or men, was upcycled from a sterling silver vintage New Guinea coin from the 1940s. It can be made in a wide range of sizes and looks and feels great on any finger from the pinky to the thumb.

THE COIN:
Origin: New Guinea,
Coin face value: 1 shilling,
Date: 1945,
Silver purity: 925 (Sterling).

THE RING:
Size: Aus / UK size S (pictured but custom sizing available),
Weight: 3.7 grams,
Band width: 5.4mm.

Due to stretching during the coin ring making process the ring is slightly thicker on the reed side than the other side. The band thickness is 1.6mm on the reed side and 1.2mm non-reed side (see photos).

The stamping on the ring reads 'Territory of New Guinea', 'One Shilling' and '1945'.

In 1945, New Guinea shillings were minted in Australia by the Melbourne Mint. No coins were struck for the territory after this time.

PLEASE NOTE: Although this ring can be made in almost any size, the band thickness will vary at the extreme ends of the scale, becoming thinner with much larger sizes and thicker with much smaller sizes. The ring shown is in the midrange of possible sizes.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

A COMPLIMENTARY patch of anti-tarnish storing cloth as well as a small silver cleaning cloth is included with every purchase to keep your jewellery piece looking beautiful!
