Default .999 Silver Round coin ring

Gave a .5 oz .999 silver round a try as a coin ring. Was a little tougher because I didn't have a 7 degree die for that size coin, so I had to use a 17 degree. Nice chunky ring.

Are you going to buff it out or tone it?

Not sure. Here is what it looked like before adding some patina and taking off some of the large reeded area. I do need to buff it yet.
