Reimagined Components: This 1949 fifty Pfennig coin featuring a woman planting an oak tree was a symbol of Germany's rebirth after World War II. We carefully placed this special coin in a hand-forged .925 sterling silver ring and made the coin movable to accentuate the movement of the woman's planting. It also serves as a soothing back-and-forth motion for those who tend to fidget. Size 7.25

An undeniable symbol of one’s own worth. One of the most valued tangible (nowadays more or less conceptual) items amongst mankind, is money. And why it is so valuable is not because of the item or numerical digit inside our bank account itself- but the countless possibilities it can represent for one’s life. When we relate to the positive associations of the coin, we remember that we hold the necessary tools inside ourselves to build a life of our dreams, to sustain our own lives and those we look after, to treat ourselves kindly, and to even uplift the sense of worth in others with the unspoken words “you deserve this” as we pass these tools along to one another.
Since the very beginning of coins’ existence, they have also served as an amazing visual display of a territory’s history, accomplishments, and culture, making them a potent symbol of pride and remembrance of where we came from and what makes us, us.
