Flash Post: Lucky Pennies
What It Is: Rings made from sterling silver and the lucky, soon-to-be-extinct penny of your choice. Whether you’re looking to commemorate an anniversary, birthday, or even just this Canadian coin, you can customize your ring including the year it’s from, the face it’s up, and even the currency. Want to honour your family roots and create a ring with your homeland’s coin? You can get custom orders done too. What’s extra cool is with their ‘found’ lucky penny collection, they’ll actually describe where the pennies were spotted – primarily the streets of Halifax – meaning you could even track down (or submit) a found penny from a significant spot for the relationship with your giftee.
Who It’s For: Your wife, as a seven-year anniversary gift (the year of copper!) with the year you got married on the penny. Your sister, as a shower gift to forever cement the birth of her on-the-way baby (that is, provided they’re not due anywhere in December / January – who knows what’ll happen!). Your mom, with your own birth year on it as a sweet Mother’s Day gift (if you’re an only child, primarily).
What It Costs: It depends on the rarity of the coin somewhat, but most rings appear to be in the $150 range.
