Now you can call me crazy. Since I started doing this, many have. In 2008, I introduced these "Numismatic (Coin) Jigsaw Puzzles" as a joke to a customer in Texas who was always trying to stump me, and coin cutting has taken a crazy turn since. With a hand saw and a saw blade only .0021" thick, I cut most any coin into an interlocking jigsaw puzzle. The very time consuming process includes hand-cutting one piece at a time, cleaning fine dust and wax off each piece with a brush and Q-tip, and reassembling with the help of tweezers. I originally sold them loose in a box, but browsers found it unbelievable that is would go back together. I now sell them in 2"x 2" plastic coin snaps. You can leave it in the case or take it apart, just make sure to have tweezers, patience and aspirin available when putting it back together. Please visit my "Birth of the Numismatic Jigsaw Puzzle" page for the complete story behind my original jigsaw puzzles.
I developed this 10 piece puzzle as a inexpensive and fun way to enjoy my puzzle creation as well as donations. I can make them from a Penny (Cent) or a Dime. I use Bright Uncirculated coins fresh from the mint to make these, please choose penny or dime. IF you have a year you would like that is within the current circulation years, 1959 to present for Cents or 1965 to present for Dimes, note it in the box provided and I'll do my best.
Single Coin Jigsaw Puzzles come with a Black Velveteen Bag useful for both display or storage.
