Throughout history, coins have been used to honor and remember people, places, and experiences. COIN COIN designs & co. creator Renée Gruszecki is a leading specialist on the material culture and social history of traditional and contemporary Euro-American sentimental jewelry and cultural tokens. The coins used to fashion these one-of-a-kind ring designs are from her personal “found coin” collection, which was amassed over the last eight years.
What's with the duck ? The luck is in the duck.
These are just a few things to think about when you notice the duck’s footprint engraved on the inside of your COIN COIN ring.
What can I expect from COIN COIN design & co.?
Personality: Your COIN COIN design is inspired by a
found lucky penny. You won’t find this unique personal connection to a jewelry
designer anywhere else! No two coins are the same.
Good Karma: COIN COIN takes penny saving to
another level. Quite literally, the penny is now extinct. This is your
chance to capture a piece of history.
Good job, you! Every penny counts!
Reliability: Online ordering should be intuitive and speedy. COIN COIN can guarantee your order arrival in 3-4 weeks.
Satisfaction: Look no further for the perfect gift idea for a friend or better yet treat yourself! COIN COIN is a treasure that comes with a story. Every lucky penny ring purchase includes a placard describing the provenance of the coin (where, when, and how it was found) as well as the designer information. Also, no coins were harmed during the making of our jewelry and our mounting process is reversible if you decide that you want to change things up in the future.

My background as a trained archivist, as well as my educational training as a Masters graduate from the History of Design and Material Culture programme at the University of Brighton in England, helped fuel my passion for preserving the abandoned parts of history. The material world around us offers much inspiration, but as a collector, coins (and coin jewelry) have always resonated in a special way for me.
Growing up in Ottawa, and presently calling the eastern shores of Halifax my home, I’ve always felt fortunate to be a part of such a historically rich culture. As a leading specialist on the material culture and social history of traditional and contemporary Euro-American sentimental jewelry and cultural tokens, it was important for me to create a jewelry line that was not only attractive but also functional, meaningful, culturally-connected, and timeless. And of course, I wanted it to bring my clients good luck because there is nothing quite as rewarding as keeping your whimsical inner-child alive.
With COIN COIN you can wear the wealth and find inspiration in change.
