US Lincoln Copper Penny | Coin Ring

US Lincoln Memorial Pennies were minted 1909-present – designed by Victor D. Brenner, and features a bust of Abraham Lincoln, “LIBERTY” and “In God We Trust” on the Obverse. Pennies minted prior to 1982 were minted in 95% copper, and 5% zinc or tin – pennies dated after 1982 and are minted in 97.5% zinc with the thin copper layer, which would melt during annealing.

These tabbed coin pendants are handcrafted from actual US Pennies with assorted dates, pre-1982.

Handcrafted, individually unique, carefully worked.

With time and wear, your pendant’s finish will naturally begin to evolve, a quick polish with a jewelry cleaning cloth works great along the way.


This item is custom “Made to Order” and typically ready to ship within 14 business days.

Optional | Protective Copper Sealant

A clear gloss sealant applied to the copper ring or pendant which helps prevent copper’s natural oxidation. The coating will diminish over time and varies based on use of skin lotions & oils.

Copper Oxidation

Copper has a beautiful red-orange hue – copper jewelry dates all the way back to 8th century B.C. It’s an essential mineral which occurs naturally in the human body, and also in nature.

When copper is exposed to skin sweat, lotions and oils, it naturally darkens and tarnishes, forming what’s typically referred to as copper patina.

This patina may leave a bluish-green mark on your skin. Copper stains are not harmful and are easily washed off with soap and water.

Many people buy copper jewelry specifically for its purported healing properties which result from direct contact with copper, however, if you prefer to wear copper purely for adornment and would rather reduce the oxidation, an optional protective sealant is available.
