Anniversary Plaque

This is a plaque that I made for my parents for their 50 anniversary. My father is a coin collector so I embedded a 50 cent piece from the year that each of us kids were born with a picture from our youth. The coin above my parents wedding picture is from the year they got married, the coin at the bottom from the 50th anniversary of their wedding.

The finish is polyurethane and it hangs on the wall with a simple key slot in the back. The coins are in plastic coins holders and the holes in the plaque were done with 2 sizes of fostner bits so the coins can be views from the back as well as the front.

A very well thought out plaque. I’m sure your parents love it.
