Hobo Coins Series I - The Bad Mojo
Hobo Coins are die-struck coins that reimagine classic US coins with new designs.
Our take on the classic Buffalo Nickel hobo coin (popular because it was a ‘soft’ coin to carve), features a skeleton Chief with a no-nonsense attitude on the front, and an intricately carved buffalo skeleton on the back. As with all the coins, this is a 39mm die-struck, hefty 10 gauge coin. This coin has a 'flat' edge like the original Buffalo Nickel.
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.
