Hand Crafted Cufflinks, made with genuine vintage coins from Canada.
Featured coin: 5 Cent Nickel Coin, Round, 1937-1942 (George VI)


These cufflinks are new.


The Beaver nickel has long been one of Canada's most beautiful coins. It features a Beaver sitting on a lodge, and was designed by the renowned artist George Kruger Gray. It was made from 99.9% nickel. A nickel purity not seen in any American coins. Nickel so pure, it is magnetic. Sadly, with inflation, Canada now make nickels from 94.5% steel, with just a little copper and nickel.



The coins used to make these cufflinks are King George VI vintage round nickels. This coin was first minted in 1937 when George VI was the new King. But the design was soon changed in 1942 when due to wartime needs for nickel, all "nickel" coins were made instead from a Tombac Brass alloy. To avoid confusion with bronze one cent coins, the "nickel" coin was made in a dodecagonal shape (12 sided). When the war was over and nickel supplies were again available for coins, Canada kept the dodecagonal shape for nickels. Thus all round King George VI nickels were only minted from 1937-1942.



The coin is nickel color and the cufflink backs are silver tone.

Both cufflinks display the same side of the coin: "CANADA", "5 CENTS", the year minted, and a beaver on a lodge.

Minted during the reign of King George VI.


The coins have been made into cufflinks using high quality toggle backs, professionally soldered to the coins. We use solder, not glue! We take the extra time to make quality, durable cufflinks so that they will look great for years to come.

I strive to have the best quality cufflinks on Etsy.

The condition of the coins used will be consistent with the photo, but as with any hand crafted item, may vary slightly. Specific dates are not guaranteed, except as noted above. Our cufflinks are made by hand in the U.S.A. The coins are cleaned and polished, and the result is great looking cufflinks ! Slight differences in the details of the coin or token add to the uniqueness of our cufflinks.



Warranty: 1 year. Any cufflink found to be defective within 1 year of purchase will be repaired or replaced.

We also offer a 7 day return privilege. We want you to be completely satisfield with your new cufflinks !
