Announcement   I search the world for attractive coins. To enhance their beauty, I developed a painting technique that looks like enameling, and hand paint each coin myself. I then design jewelry pieces with them so they can be worn and shared with others.
Whether you cherish a place in the world, an animal or piece of nature, feel simply elegant wearing a special treasure made just for you.

Hand painted coins by Ann Nolen. This unusually shaped coin from the Bahamas has a lovely Hibiscus flower on it. Some coins are commemorative issues & are only sold to coin collectors. This coin has been used for a number of years & is in circulation.
This beautiful hummingbird design is a coin from Jamaica that I handpainted. The Streamertail Hummingbird is their national bird & considered by many to be the most beautiful bird in the world. It is also considered good luck. AnimalCoin.com

About

Wear what you love, love what you wear❤

I happen to love animals & nature. Over 20 years ago, I also fell in love with coin collecting. You guessed it, I collected coins from all over the world with an animal or nature theme. Unlike many collectors, I wanted to be able to wear what I loved & share it that way.

I was already hand painting silk scarves & selling them, but the coin jewelry just kept calling me. It turns out only 6 people in the world hand paint coins, so there wasn't anyone to show me the way. So I spent months experimenting & developed my own blend of paints & technique. I also practiced like crazy until I could paint the fine detail. Then in 2009, AnimalCoin was born.

So, this is a rare & time consuming art and each coin becomes it's own little treasure. Best of all, it gives the wearer an opportunity to show their friends & neighbors what they love. ...A place in the world, a significant date, an animal or a piece of nature. I love this, & I hope you do too.

For those who are interested, I live north of San Francisco in the beautiful wine region. Both my husband & I quilt as a hobby, so our home is a messy creative place, but we love our life. Oh yes, I also foster bottle fed baby kittens for our local Humane Society, and we have a little army of tiny rescue dogs.

If you would like to know more about my art or my life, please check out my website & blog at AnimalCoin.com.

Hugs, Ann

    I enjoy that I do every step of my business myself. I am 1 of only 6 artists in the world that hand paint coins. I developed my technique myself & blend my own paints. I hand paint & finish each piece myself. Rare & special, just for you!

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

The coins and the surface are very durable. Even if they would probably be ok, I don't recommend wearing them in water or swimming. I just don't know how much abuse is too much.

You can clean the jewelry with a soft cloth. If your coin is made of silver, the portions not covered in epoxy resin can be polished with a silver cloth, if needed.

Repairs are usually simple to make, so if unexpected damage occurs, contact me to arrange a warranty repair or a quote for work needed.
