I'm going to be doing an ANA presentation in April that includes this as a large percentage of the content. Here are just a few of the many, many things I have that fit this theme.


Australian penny as keychain ornament



New Zealand penny plated and part of a spoon.



Pfennigs used as the rowels in cowboy spurs.




British sixpence turned into a photo locket.

I'll probably add some more to this thread soon as I'm updating my presentation and will do it in a week.

In the meantime, I really want to ask. Can anybody point me towards a penny still on a pie crimper that's reasonable price-wise? I'd like whatever 'varieties' I can reasonably get regarding them.

How about as a way to "dress up" a bookmark?

Back in 2016, I attended an Early American Coppers (EAC) Convention in Charlotte, NC. As I like to do at all Conventions/Shows, I spent time in the Educational Exhibits area.

One of the exhibits on display caught my attention beyond all of the others - it presented 20+ ways that US Large Cents had been used for a purpose other than money. Small gears, pie crimpers, buttons, good luck charms (holed after being nailed to a wall), washers, etc. It was all very interesting!

The only coin I've found at an estate sale so far that I couldn't walk away from.
