    I mentioned earlier that I wrote an article on penny exonumia and am also working on putting together an exhibit for the Summer ANA show in Chicago. Included in my penny exonumia collection are these cool Repousse Indian cents (aka push outs or pop outs). Here is a little information I found about these fun pieces:

    These interesting pieces of exonumia are also known as “Pushed Up,” “3-D,” or “Repousse” coins. Many varieties exist, including Miss Liberty, Presidents, with Lincoln being the most common, as well as animals, Indians, political, religious, fraternal clubs, foreign themes, etc. Many pop-outs were made into jewelry, such as fobs, rings, pins, brooches, pendants, cuff links, etc. A book on pop out coins called “Pop Out Repousse Coins – a Numismatic Mystery” was published in 2011 by Robert (Stumpy) Stump, who passed away a few days after the book was sent to print.

    I posted photos of these two Indian repousse's I took with my iPhone in my Baltimore show report, but here are Todd's wonderful photos of these two pieces I acquired at the Baltimore show!

    They will go nicely with the Roosevelt push out that I already had in my collection.

    Believe it or not I think this is art. Just think, and I really mean this if you can push out some nice indian head gold indian coins. I would buy one or do one for my wifey to wear with pride.

    Is there a trick to do this? Pm me if you do it or know who does it. G

    Od the four you've posted, I would purchase all but that Indian. I hage to state that I just do not care for what was done to the coin. Had the art been less of a poor duplicate, perhaps, but certainly not what they ended up with.
