Hobo Coins Series II - The Davey Jones Locker
Hobo Coins are die-struck coins that reimagine classic US coins with new designs.
The Davey Jones Locker - 1919 S Wheat Penny
The original wheat penny designed by Victor D. Brenner made its debut in 1909. Our rendition reimagines the coin with a nautical theme underscoring the dangers that lurk below. Aged with an antiqued finish, the coins will have a ‘smooth’ edge like the original (not ‘reeded’). As with all the coins, this is a 39mm die-struck, hefty 10 gauge coin.
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.
