Coins, generally manufactured for use as currency, can also be used in various leisure activities. Much like Pogs, you can flip ’em, spin ’em, collect ’em, display ’em, toss ’em, etc. It’s the second one we’re concerned with here, however.
Sure, a nice quarter might spin for a second or two, but if you’re ready to bring your time-wasting game to the next level you may want something like the True North Spin Coin from J.L. Lawson.
The True North Spin Coin is a meticulously crafted and weighted disc that’s specifically engineered for spinning. As if that weren’t enough, it also has a compass built right in, albeit not one that the coin’s creator intends to be a practical addition to the user’s EDC stash:
“To all survival types…I’m well aware that this isn’t the best way to carry a compass in a survival situation. It’s meant to be a bit of a novelty but the compass is indeed functional…and is mesmerizing to watch while spinning.”
The J.L. Lawson True North Spin Coin comes in both copper and brass variants, priced at $110 and $95, respectively. You can get yours at the J.L. Lawson online store right here.
