These Silver Authentic Vintage Newfoundland 10cent Coin’s have been hand fashioned into lovely earrings. Please note, every coin is slightly different so might vary slightly from the photo though the pairs do match. I hand fashion these, each and every one is unique. The marquise hook is long and comfortable, 925 Sterling Silver, 20gage.
Am excited to have my jewelry work in St. John’s at, N Design Studio, located at 100 Duckworth St.

Newfoundland struck 10 cent coins from 1865 until 1947, although not in all years. From 1865 to 1944 they are 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper (sterling silver) then this was reduced to 80% silver and 20% copper from 1945 to 1947.
GEORGE VI TEN CENTS
Newfoundland George VI 10 cent coins are graded by a different standard than the earlier dates. Just below the King's crown, in front of the ear, is a small patch of hair on which the grading is based. In Fine that patch will be worn fairly smooth, in VF you will see about half of it, in XF 90%, and AU and higher it will be complete and sharp. Have fun looking...
