I started making one today. I made it out of a regular quarter, and it's getting so small that it's not gonna be able to fit on any of my fingers other than the pinky.
He must have used a 50 cent piece with LOTS of silver in it, as I was using a full-blown shop hammer and it took me the better part of an hour to get the thing to look even REMOTELY like what he has in these pictures. It would take me about a week to use a spoon.
I'm gonna go to the bank and buy a silver half-dollar to make my final piece. I'll post pics here of it.

way too complicated and expensive -- might as well just get a real ring for 15 bucks

Ok, kiddies...let's not get all wound up over some kid who calls himself Mr.Know-It-All. How well can you trust what they say with a name like that?

*covers her name with a piece of tape*

I mean really....

I don't really see the point of making it into a ring that looks like any old ring.
But I did once buy a cut american quarter. Basically it's a coin with holes in it to emphasize the design.
And maybe that's illegal but it's sure as hell common.

mediawhore91: Actually, you get a clear look at the profile in the seventh image. On closer inspection, I was wrong. It's a Kennedy half dollar used in the description. Eisenhower didn't have a double chin in his profile. Half dollars still work though since the original issues are about 90% silver (just like the Eisenhower silver dollars) and they still had up to 40% silver until the 70's.

SammyFrank: First off, I'm not an alternate account. Secondly, if you had bothered to read my post at all you would have seen that I am disagreeing with Mr.Knowitall. The government would only be able to press charges if someone were defacing money in order to pass it off as a different amount. Common in a lot of forms of counterfeiting. My post was backing you up by reinforcing that the government can't do a thing if you decide to destroy currency as long as there is no fraudulent intent. Please try to remember these simple steps; read, think and then post before you indulge in being a jackass.

Sweet! I finally finished my ring. I must say this is one of the more useful links that's been posted. Although (since the quarter I used isn't made of silver) it's kinda brassy colored, you can still tell it's a quarter because it says THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA - QUARTER DOLLAR - on the inside. Pretty cool. I'll try to get a picture of it.

Hey, that's pretty neat. I tried to make one, and I got pretty far, but half way through it, the CIA busted down my door and arrested me. Said something about "defacing currency" or whatnot. Oh well. It really does work though. The edge of mine turned completely copper-colored for some reason when I tried to sand it though... And no, it doesn't have to be silver, plain old normal everyday quarters work just as well.

Dick Cheney Lights his cigars with twenty dollar bills. I can make a ring out of quarters.

Actually sammyfrank, that is a US Silver Dollar, it has a portrait of Eisenhower on it. As far as the legality of this act, this is what the US treasury has to say:

"Section 331 of Title 18 of the United States code provides criminal penalties for anyone who “fraudulently alters, defaces, mutilates impairs, diminishes, falsifies, scales, or lightens any of the coins coined at the Mints of the United States.” This statute means that you may be violating the law if you change the appearance of the coin and fraudulently represent it to be other than the altered coin that it is. As a matter of policy, the U.S. Mint does not promote coloring, plating or altering U.S. coinage: however, there are no sanctions against such activity absent fraudulent intent."

So as long as you aren't trying to pass it off as a coin of different value for the purposes of trading it for goods or services then you'll be fine. The government doesn't really promote it but they couldn't sto
