The Mint Collection

Introducing the Mint Collection by Fisher of Pens

The Mint Collection combines the art of coin rings and coin shaping with fountain pens. Folding coin rings for use as cap bands and doming coins as finials adds a unique flavor to these custom pens.

The Mint Collection has been a concept that has been in my head for a number of years. I have always been fascinated by the artists that were making coin rings and on numerous occasions I attempted to hone my skills but could never produce a ring small enough for the need.

Proof of concept pen

Recently I was reintroduced to new tooling that now made the vision possible. Through a series of dies I am now able to create coin rings small enough to fit on one of my standard sized pens.

These will be run in batches that are configured in a particular material, nib and coin selection.

The initial batch of 5 will be numbered 1-5 and are crafted in a custom poured color mix called “Dark Side” from Carolina Pen Company. Nib option will be a black oxide Jowo #6 steel nib and the coins will be a United States quarter for the cap band and dime for the pen body finial. Pricing will vary per batch with the initial batch priced at $349 per pen.

You will also be able to purchase coin rings separately from the fountain pens. Rings will be available from numerous coins both domestic and foreign. Contact me to see if your coin of choice can be ringed.
