These repurposed guitar picks by Uncommon Goods offer an innovative way to reused unwanted American currency by converting the metal change into triangular plectrums that can be used for musical experiences. The picks are heavier in weight providing a durable design for strumming.

The picks are made out of dimes and nickels that are flattened and then recut, to transform the circular shape into pointed triangles that are ideal for catching guitar strings and creating a powerful acoustic song. While many picks are made from nylon or plastic, these repurposed coin ones offer a much more long lasting and durable design. The coins are also patriotic featuring emblems and designs well-known for their appearance on American currency. This includes the Statue of Liberty and the infamous eagle.
