Hobo Coins Series I - The Walking Reaper
Hobo Coins are die-struck coins that reimagine classic US coins with new designs.
The 'Walking Reaper' Hobo Coin is based on what is considered one the most beautiful coins of all time, the Walking Liberty Half Dollar. Front side (obverse) features a grim reaper you never want to meet, and the back of the coin shows a Poe-esque scene with a skull, candle, and raven. As with all the coins, this is a 39mm die-struck, hefty 10 gauge coin. This coin will have a reeded edge like the original Walking Liberty Half Dollar.
Each coin weighs about the same as 5 US. quarters, and are a little larger than the size of a US Dollar coins (these coins are 39 mm). 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.
