Make a Silver Ring From 1964 or Before Quarter

This step by step tutorial of how to make a silver ring from a 1964 or before quarter is a great conversation piece as you wear a piece of our nation’s currency. Quarters made before 1964 are a metal composition of 90% silver and 10% copper. If you have a hard time naturally finding a 1964 or before quarter in your random change from buying daily items – you can buy one on Amazon for about six dollars and seventy five cents.

Materials and tools need for this project:

  • Silver Coin (US quarters before 1964)

  • Small hammer or spoon

  • Drill or Dremel

  • 200-1200 Sand paper (grit)

  • Safety glasses

  • Gloves

  • Vice grips

The first step is actually a long drawn out process but the outcome is rewarding. Holding the quarter firmly between your thumb and index finger begin tapping the quarter rim with a spoon as you slowly turn the coin.
