Now you can call me crazy. Since I started doing this, many have. In 2008, I introduced these "Numismatic (Coin) Jigsaw Puzzles" as a joke to a customer in Texas who was always trying to stump me, and coin cutting has taken a crazy turn since. With a hand saw and a saw blade only .0021" thick, I cut most any coin into an interlocking jigsaw puzzle. The very time consuming process includes hand-cutting one piece at a time, cleaning fine dust and wax off each piece with a brush and Q-tip, and reassembling with the help of tweezers. I originally sold them loose in a box, but browsers found it unbelievable that is would go back together. I now sell them in 2"x 2" plastic coin snaps. You can leave it in the case or take it apart, just make sure to have tweezers, patience and aspirin available when putting it back together. Please visit my "Birth of the Numismatic Jigsaw Puzzle" page for the complete story behind my original jigsaw puzzles.
A 21 Piece Puzzle with a message "HAPPY B-DAY". I cut the message in the coin then cut the puzzle around the message. This puzzle comes with a box. The box has a picture of the coin used to make the puzzle. You can take the puzzle apart and put in the box for a "Hidden Message" puzzle then use the box for storage or display.
