I have several WW II Australian coin bracelets. I want more information. My first one was given to me around 1957-58 when I was about 14. The woman who gave it to me was British. She had a boyfriend from New Zealand on an "Australian aircraft carrier". Her husband didn't want her to keep a piece of jewelry another man had made for her, I was wearing other silver jewelry so she gave it to me. In the last 5 years I have seen several more like this with just these George VI coins. I am also seeing them on ebay, etc. I want to know more about them. I strongly suspect they were made on board ships with some sort of hobby metal shop. Very few have been soldered. Some have very innovative links and clasps.
I have had the links on mine soldered because I want to wear them. I have also had safety chains attached after my first one fell open in a shopping center parking lot!
