Making Coin Rings!

Historical Coin Protection Act should be amended to include coins not just from the United States but from every country.
I have wanted to try the spoon/mallet method for a smooth ring, but I also have an article on making the double sided ones. I doubt they would turn out as good as the ones Chris posted just because I only have scrounged items to use rather than specialized equipment.
Why'd you have to do that? Why?
It's like kicking a hornets nest.
Why what? I supported Detecto's Historical Coin Protection Act when he proposed it last October and after having seen the above video I support it even more now. Destroying old and historic pre-1965 coins by milling, bending, carving, melting, etc. should be a felony. Only the government that issued a coin to begin with should be allowed to destroy it. Even then the only time a government should only be able destroy a coin is if it is damaged.
Those do look quite nice. It all depends how the ring is made I suppose.
You can't save every tree and you can't save every coin.
I won't get them all but I'm doing my best.
2) Look at all the silver shavings flying everywhere! Breaks my heart.
3) I like the two-sided rings much better.
Those are steel shavings. Those dies are not made of silver.
I think he is talking about 3:10 in the video when the guy starts to round the edges of the ring on the spinning thing (is it a lathe?)
