This is an amazing store with a super interesting owner/ coin master ;)
We really loved so many pieces and it took us forever to decide which ones to buy. The coin-necklaces are so beautiful and unique - and for a great price. We are so happy to have found this amazing store and recommend it whole-heartedly!

I contacted the store via email before placing my order . They were quick to respond and continued to communicate via WhatsApp. Sissy was very helpful in advising about their products, and even in arranging to have my order delivered to my resort for a small additional cost. Their products are excellent quality and make for lovely personalized gifts or even keepsakes for yourself. I highly recommend visiting the store or even their website if you are unable to physically go to the store . They offer a wide variety of products and aim please their customers as best as they can .

This is a great place to find very unique gifts. I found cut out coins with the birth year of my family members and friends making it a personalized gift. The prices are marked. The price reflects the amount of detail and skill. I found a gift for 18 dollars and a beautiful coin for myself with great detail for 45 dollars. My coin had all negative space removed showing the accent details clearly. I love it!

This shop has more than souvenirs- they carry gifts that will become treasured keepsakes. I am so glad that I did some research before my trip and found this gem. I was able to bring some specific coins from home that have special significance to me. I bought two coins from the shop that were already made and then I left two coins for them to make with special inscriptions. They took my information and said they would be mailed out to me within a few days. Due to customs and such it took a few weeks to reach me at home but I was so very pleased with their work. One was sent off as a gift to a friend who truly loved it and the other was for me. I wear it all the time and it is a great reminder of my wonderful time in Africa.
Asante Sana.

We ordered two necklaces with the motive of the world and he was a bit late, because of an emergency, but they delivered and they were very friendly and telling us that he was on his way and everything.
The necklaces are so cute and this is definitely a place I would recommend.

We spotted positive comments on Tripadvisor so looked out for the Coins Shop & were glad we did. We chatted about the process of making the cut-outs and were amazed there weren’t more rejects. In the end we came away with 5 coins and were very pleased with the souvenirs.
