I just bought 3 of these beauties (Fiji $10 2012) and now would like to get them mounted in a bezel for use as a choker/necklace.
They measure 54 x 32 x 2 mm.
Got a quote from a local silversmith for $225/ea in permanent sterling silver with 4 week delivery.
This is actually more than the coin cost...
Would really like to know if this is reasonable or any other place to ask for a quote. It is an odd shape...
I think the odd shape is what is costing you , I doubt you will find a bezel that will fit the coin and one will have to be custom made. I ran into a similar problem will a couple of 1/10 oz coins for my grandaughters........I found the bezels on ebay that would fit and had the local jeweler do the rest and it cut my cost in half.
Thanks for the reply. After looking around at Jeweler's supply pages I finally realized that "custom" means the same thing as going to your friendly blacksmith back in the 18th century for a handmade shovel. Can't really seem to find any links for a quote on the Internet though.
Has a selection of round bezels, maybe they can be "adjusted" to fit???
