1946 Tunisia 5 Francs coin ring


Wow, this was not an easy ring  to make.  Thickness of the coin is 2.28 mm so it took me some time to punch the hole in it.  Next time will use a drill I think.  Very nice coin and the design looks awesome.  I have made one ring in size 13 so I should be posting it in my shop very soon.  Have a look at some pictures of the coin before I turned it into a coin ring.  It was minted only in 1946 in Paris.  Around 10 million were minted.  Size of the coin is approximately 31 mm and it was made from Aluminiim-bronze.  It is a heavy coin at 12.20 grams.  It was demonized in 1956.
