We have hand cut a 4 piece necklace set from a Real Silver Dollar so each piece holds the shape of an anchor and connects together to form the whole coin again. And we will custom engrave a name into each of the 4 necklaces. The engraving is deep but it does not go all the way through the coin. The coins we use to ply our trade are all real and authentic. A skilled craftsman works on each coin to ensure quality, first starting with holes from a drill press and then hand cutting each line with a Jeweler's Coping Saw.
Please look at the coin option page to see the relative sizes of the Silver Half Dollar and the Silver Dollar. The coin pictured is of the Silver Dollar.
Cutting into large coins like beautiful Real Silver Half Dollars & Dollars takes a lot of work. Because of the greater thickness and surface area of these coins it makes them a much harder project than just cutting from a quarter, but it is always worth the effort! Only on these 2 larger coin sizes can we fit a 4 piece relationship necklace set like this. Anchors Aweigh, Cheers!
