Are you looking for hobo coin jewelry? These coins engraved with fanciful heads have caught your attention. Hobo nickel coins are a sculptural art form that involves creative modifications of small denomination coins, essentially producing miniature shallow reliefs. American nickels are favored for their size, thickness and relative softness. However, the term hobo nickel is generic because the sculptures are made in many different denominations. Because of its low cost and portability, this medium was particularly popular among hobos, hence the name of Hobo coin.
Vagabonds transform classic coins by using knives and other makeshift tools to engrave their own designs on round metal surfaces. These hand-held, shallow relief carvings reflect the personality of the individual, etched forever into the shiny metal coin. Our hobo coin pendants are similarly engraved with elaborate designs, each hobo coin features a different element, from classic Indian heads, gods' heads, skeletal pirates, animals,skulls and more.
