Hobo Coins Series I - The RIP Dollar
Hobo Coins are die-struck coins that reimagine classic US coins with new designs.
Arguably the most beautiful coin ever produced, the U.S. Peace Dollar was originally produced to commemorate the peace that followed World War One. Our rendition features a skull portrait (keeping the radiant crown) on the front (obverse), and two skeletal hands breaking a rifle on the back (reverse). Interesting to note that the ‘broken rifle’ was abstracted into the Peace Symbol we know today. Rest in Peace! As with all the coins, this is a 39mm die-struck, hefty 10 gauge coin. Also, this coin features a reeded edge.
Each coin weighs about the same as 5 US. quarters, and are a little larger than the size of a US Dollar coins. Die-struck with over 100 tons of pressure in solid metal alloys and featuring a variety of finishes as shown. Also available as a set of four antique-finish coins. It's important to note that the brass-plated steel coins are a little thinner than the other finishes (12 gauge), but can be used with magnets.
Please note that Hobo Coins are not actual US currency or modified US currency coins, they are die-struck new coins at different sizes, weights, and with different art than actual US coins.
