Well here is an idea. Today I poured resin on this round table to seal it. I'm curious if there are any other coin crafters out there? What's your craft?

Wow, that is really nice! Where did you get the coins for the table? Did you look for BU and AU cents or did you just take them as they came? Any idea how many coins you used to make that design?
And by the way.....

However, now no way to cash them in if you need money.

Years ago, long before getting restarted collecting coins I made a plaque with my daughter's name on it, a 1x10x16" using quarters, dimes, nickels and cents gatherered from circulation and a couple of rolls even. This was about 1993 or 1994. It was used over the door to her new bedroom I had just made in the basement. She still has it on a shelf in her home today... been meaning to check some of them each time I'm there but forget. Oh, BTW, her birthday was 1982, wouldn't it just get me if there's an 82D small date copper glued and sealed under 3 coats of polyurethane!

I made a table top and a set of coasters. The pennies on the table are merely glued to a piece of posterboard and sandwiched between two sheets of acrylic. They can be removed and spent without too much trouble. The coasters have no protective surface at all, just glued to the (spray-painted) cork, and they corroded pretty quickly but still look kinda cool.



Working on: Peace dollars (two to go), US type (Bust era), Chinese pandas, and San Francisco tokens.

I am really impressed with those tables, mtravao3 and Alpha2814!

Of course, with the old British pre-decimal pennies, you can even cover a car!

That car is a piece of work! So is the table in the OP -- I really like the pattern (which I didn't have patience for on my own) and the steel cent in the center is a great choice.

10,000 years from now somebody will be trying to strip away the resin of your table for the coins due to the rest of our coins having rotted away, yours will still be preserved.

Probably no worse than it does with an above average heavy driver.

We must not forget the "Silver Queen" when we discuss coins as art projects


3,261 Silver Dollars and 28 $20 gold Double Eagles.
