Dear Mr. Proffer and Flintski Jewelry,

Thank you for replying, sorry for getting back with you so late. I would like to tell you about the purchase I made from your store a few weeks back. After we emailed back and forth on June 1, I was afraid I was not going to be able to receive one of these beautiful rope coin bezels before I had to fly out to my daughter’s wedding.

So I used the internet to locate your store and get a telephone number and when I called there was a man that answered. He told me that you had left for the day and wanted to know if he could help me. He spent a lot of time with me on the phone helping me with my purchase and making sure everything was perfect. Once everything was completed he reassured me that the rope coin bezel would ship next day air and that I would receive it in time and it arrived just as he had promised.

This was my first daughter to get married and I wanted everything to be perfect. It was a very emotional moment when I gave her the rope bezel with a coin in it and that moment would have never been possible if he hadn’t taken the time to help me like he did.

I don’t know his name but please let him know how special he made my daughter’s wedding. May God bless him for many years to come. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Sincerely,
Michael Auxier

Why is it that when out shopping, I often find myself paying more attention to the “girly” jewelry than the stuff guys may wear?  I’m not certain if this is because out of my 4 children, 3 are girls or what!  But what I do know is lately both my teenage son and husband have been interested in a variety of jewelry pieces.  Most days they both have at least a chain on.  This has made me take notice that it’s not just my guys; but a lot of the teenage boys are wearing both silver & gold chains both with & without pendants.

So now I’m curious …
Guys … What type of chain do you like?
Preference in Gold or Silver, Length, Weight, etc.

For my son’s birthday, I gave him a 1925 (my birth year) Silver Dollar mounted in a sterling silver money clip. I also gave him a 30″ 6mm Sterling Silver Figaro Chain.

You would think that he would put his money in the clip and use it as a money clip, well he didn’t. He wanted to put it on his Figaro chain and wear it as a “Coin Money Clip Pendant” so that he could show it off to everyone. It looks GREAT!! Edmond Proffer

BUYING OLD COINS-what to look for:
Morgan Silver Dollar.jpg
Coins sell by the condition of the coin.  Flawless coins are struck with exaggerated detail; flawless, no blemishes, scratches, bad marks or wear and tear.  These coins are worth a lot of money; whatever the market will bear, no set price.
What to look for when buying a coin:
1. Check both sides of the coin for flaws
2. Check the degree of wear on the coin
3. See if the coin has mint marks
4. The coin should not be damaged

Coins with Eagles

When buying a coin with an Eagle on it, check to see if all the feathers are still there; look for the degree in which the feathers are worn.  Make sure the mint marks are readable.  Make sure the Eagle coins do not have bad marks, scratches, and imperfections or flaws.  All silver and gold coins have some value.  Start with melt prices and go from there.
Having an old coin, you may be rich, but not likely.  The rarity and condition of the coin and how many were minted that year determines the equal value.  Good luck to you.

Flowing Hair Dollars, 1794-1795

The Flowing Hair dollar was the first dollar coin issued by the United States federal government. The coin was minted in 1794 and 1795. The obverse of the coin is the Bust of the Liberty and on the reverse is an eagle surrounded by a wreath.

Draped Bust Dollars, 1795-1804

In 1795, the Draped Bust dollar replaced the Flowing Hair coinage. Its reverse design remained similar to the one on the Flowing Hair dollar until 1798, when it was changed to a heraldic eagle until the end of the series. These coins represent a remarkable era in American dollar history.

Liberty Seated Dollars, 1840‑1873

Liberty Seated silver dollars were introduced in 1840. The obverse design depicts Liberty seated on a rock, her left hand holding a liberty cap on a pole, and her right hand resting on a shield inscribed LIBERTY. The reverse design features an eagle clutching an olive branch and arrows. Amid the religious fervor of the Civil War era, the motto IN GOD WE TRUST was added to the reverse in 1866, and continued through the end of the series in 1873.

Morgan Dollars, 1878‑1921

The Morgan dollar was minted from 1878 to 1904, and again in 1921. The obverse of the coin has the beautiful liberty head, while the reverse has an eagle clasping arrows and a olive branch.

Peace Dollars, 1921-1935

1924-p-peace-silver-dollar-bu_223525_3

The Peace dollar was minted from 1921 to 1928, and again in 1934 and 1935. The design was emblematic of peace. Its obverse represents the head and neck of the Goddess of Liberty in profile, and the reverse depicts a bald eagle at rest clutching an olive branch, with the legend “Peace”.

American Silver Eagle, 1986-Present Date

 

It was first released by the United States Mint on November 24, 1986. The design on the
coin’s obverse was taken from the “Walking Liberty” and the reverse portrays a heraldic
eagle behind a shield; the eagle grasps an olive branch in its right talon and arrows in its left talon, echoing the Great Seal of the United States; above the eagle are thirteen five-pointed stars representing the Thirteen Colonies.

The United States Mint produces all circulating coinage for the United States, gold bullion and silver coins. It does not produce paper money.  The Mint was created in Philadelphia in 1792, and soon joined by Denver, San Francisco, and West Point.

The Mint was created by Congress with the Coinage Act of 1792. The first Mint building was in Philadelphia, then next at the capital of the United States. Today, the Mint’s headquarters are in Washington D.C.. It operates mint facilities in Philadelphia, Denver, San Francisco, and West Point, New York and a bullion depository at Fort Knox, Kentucky. Official Branches were once also located in Carson City, Nevada; Charlotte, North Carolina; Dahlonega, Georgia; New Orleans, Louisiana; Washington, D.C.; and even in Manila, in the Philippines. There are four active coin-producing mints: Philadelphia, Denver, San Francisco, and West Point.

The product line includes special coin sets for collectors, national medals, American Eagle gold, silver and platinum bullion coins, and commemorative coins marking national events such as the Bicentennial of the Constitution. The Mint’s functions include:

  • Producing domestic, bullion and foreign coins;

Do you prefer using a money clip or a wallet? Everyone has their own preference. But all of us here at Flintski Jewelry prefer a Coin Money Clip.

Some ask, “What is special about a Coin Money Clip?” You can make a coin money clip very special and it will last you a whole lifetime.

We offer money clips in hinged back and spring back and they are all .925 Sterling Silver and Rhodium Plated. If you aren’t very familiar with the significance of coins we can help you with that. We have beautiful Morgan and Peace Silver Dollars, the Walking Liberty Silver Eagle Silver dollar and all Half Dollars. Choose which coin you like best and your special year and we will create your beautiful piece for you.

Flintski Jewelry offers many different styles of Coin Bezels.

Our coin edge bezel has a plain smooth front and around the outside of the bezel is a coin edging just like the edging around the outside of a quarter. This creates a more simple pendant. This style is available in 14k Gold, .925 Sterling Silver and 14k Gold Filled.

If you are looking for a more elegant bezel then the diamond cut bezel is perfect. It is made just like the coin edge except it has a diamond cut etching around the face of it adding the perfect detail to your coin. You can get the diamond cut style in 14k Gold, .925 Sterling Silver and in some of our 14k Gold Filled coins bezel sizes.

We also have a rope style coin bezel. It has a diamond cut rope around the outside of the bezel and gives your coin the extra character that you are looking for in your pendant. It is available in 14k Gold, .925 Sterling Silver and 14k Gold Filled.

The diamond cut rope bezel is just what it says. It is the rope bezel with a small diamond cut etching around the front. It will give your coin pendant that extra “bling” that you are looking for. This style is available in .925 Sterling Silver but can be ordered special in 14k Gold and 14k Gold Filled.
