Modern copper alloy finger ring made from a George VI penny. The ring is D-shaped in cross-section, convex on the outside and flat on the inner side.

Post medieval copper alloy contemporary copy of a shilling of George III (1760-1820), dated 1817 on coin, Spink 3790. Besley and Boon (in Brennan 1991:15, no.28) report a similar copy and suggest they were relatively common in this period when people were still becoming familiar with the new style of coinage. It was presumably originally silver plated but the plating has worn off. SOM-4E0936 and DENO-E286E1 are similar.
