Change Your Tune

Handcrafted from quarter or dollar coins, Dustin & Stephanie Headrick's guitar picks are a celebration of coin, music, and country. Each coin's distinctive raised insignia gives these picks an easy-to-grip texture, so they'll stay on hand regardless of the style you prefer to strum. Coin guitar picks have been used by musicians for a century because of their unique tonal qualities. They create increased volume and a bright attack on acoustic instruments such as guitar, ukulele and mandolin. They can also entirely change the sound of an electric guitar by naturally reacting with the strings and pickup dynamics. Choose from the set of 2 quarters (includes the standard Washington/eagle coin and the Tennessee/guitar coin or Tennessee/Great Smoky Mountain coin) or a set of 2 dollar coins (the Liberty and Kennedy coins). Hand-honed in Nashville, Tennessee; appropriately nicknamed the "Music City."

Made in Washington

Nashville natives Stephanie and Dustin Headrick transform common cents into uncommon guitar picks. The couple started with a collection of silver quarters and half-dollars, but didn't really want to watch them sit around for 50 years and collect dust. It's well known with musicians that silver coin guitar picks have been around for a hundred years, but actually getting your hands on one is a rare thing. So, the savvy numismatists began hand-honing the coins into picks and immediately loved the tinny sound they produced. After gaining popularity at local craft fairs, they began experimenting with other materials: brass, bronze, copper, aluminum, hardwood, and even horn. To date, they've sold tens of thousands of handmade guitar picks to musicians all over the world, with many customers becoming avid collectors.

      What a cool idea!! Repurpose coins as guitar picks. The guitar picks are very classy, so shiny and, of course, will last forever.

          My husband actually told me he wanted these while looking through the catalog. They are far brighter and way cooler than shown. Planning on passing them down to his son who also plays guitar. What a great idea! Was the perfect gift for my rock star! Thank you!
