January 4, 2014 | in Art

Spanish artist Paolo Curcio, known online as mrthe77, creates his own coins made of several layers of metal, also known as clad coins.

Paolo Curcio takes existing coins and transforming them into something completely different. Mostly, the new parts of the coins are made of nickel. Although, that’s not mandatory. Brass, tin, copper are also suitable for the job. Given the fact that the creation of each coin requires a lot of work, the cost is not that high, ranging from $20 to $300.
