One of the best places to buy a unique gift for yourself or someone close to you. Craft work is always special to me and I prefer it rather than rubbish produced in China in a factory. Owner is helpful and can do whatever you like, to your design, within 24h. I have bought a coin cut half with names first letters (me and my wife) engraved. Simple, but very unique and not too pricey. We paid only 28 USD for two bracelets.

My daughter gave me a gift of earrings which she bought on holiday in Zanzibar recently. Sadly, and unknown to her, I lost one😥 I emailed the Coin Shop and Sissy was fantastic. She sent me a link to order just one earring to match the one I lost. Delivery was very quick and I am delighted. Very efficient service. Thank you so much. June Hall

Absolutely in love with my bracelet, Sissy and her husband did an awesome job drawing on the coin i chose the picture i sent them and cutting it out!!!They are so talented!!I recommend them with all my heart because what they make with coins is not just a jewel but pure art!Definitely worth a visit if in Zanzibar, if not they ship worldwide and getting in contact with Sissy is very easy, she is a lovely woman!!I spoke with her on the phone, i sent the photo i wanted done through WhatsApp,we designed it together and i had my bracelet shipped to UK with a courier; it was with me in exactly a week time!I will never stop thanking them for their amazing job!!

I was fortunate enough this summer to do some volunteer work in Zanzibar, and I have been searching for something that can remind me of everyone and everything over there (I am from the states)... and then I came across The Coins Shop online. The jewelry here- well, it speaks for itself. Not only is their craftsmanship alone incomparable to any other work or previous experience I have had with coin jewelry, but the service they dedicate to their customers is 100% held to the highest standard, it honestly is the main reason why I am writing this review. Even a customer like me- just a student from Ohio on the other side of the world. They contacted me for weeks (super understanding of my busy schedule) and helped me find a ring that looked the way I wanted it to and fit properly since the first one did not with no hesitation at all whatsoever. After so much communication, patience, work, and at no additional cost- the owners simply wanted me to be happy with their product and I am so ordering from this place again. I am beyond excited and even HONORED to have something on my hand that now not only reminds me of my volunteering experience in Tanzania but now these incredible local artisans that put their heart, work, and time on the line for me- even if we are over 8,000 miles away. Words cannot express the level of love and gratitude I have towards this shop. Long review but I want everyone to know how incredible this place is! Asante sana!!!

The first time I purchased something from the Coins Shop was in 2012 and Im still wearing my beautiful necklace every day (along with a few other additions)! Ive received so many compliments on this and so have my friends and family I have given them as gifts to, or so I hear! Its necklace, ring, bracelet, earring is such a unique piece of art and craftsmanship that every time I go into the shop I am overwhelmed!

A Unique shop in the center of Stone Town. They can cut and fix whatever you want or you can choose from their ready made. Bring your own coin or they will give you. Love it!

Review №8

I love The Coin Shop. Whereas most of the other stores in Stonetown just sell the usual plastic souvenirs OR are just extremely expansive, Sissy & Familys shop is unique. And so are their products: I got a spoon bracelet I still wear with pride and get compliments for. I also gave them a Euro coin and within a day or so, theyd made something great out of it. Whenever I can I tell people to visit the shop or get a great gift online.

I have been buying products from the coins shop since 2014. So far the owners, Sisi and Phamilli have designed me two necklaces, a bracelet and a ring. They offer the great service to customize your coins. All you have to do is simply tell them how you want the coin to look like and which coin from their selection you want to have. They create the coin for you within a very short amount of time.I especially enjoy the fact that this kind of a souvenir is very unique. I have never seen a souvenir shop like this anywhere in the world. So once you have something from there you can almost be certain that not many besides you wear some this kind of jewellery!Sisi and Phamilli are very friendly and honest people who have put all their creativity into their coins and the shop! The prices are very fair considering that everything is handmade!This shop is definitely one attraction in Stone Town you shouldnt miss on your tour ❤

I was fortunate to fine this unique shop that combines art with history, to create something so sentimental. I had a hard time choosing which piece I many of the items interested me. But Phamilly (the founder) walked me through the items and what they represented, then he asked me where was I from? I told him, “I’m a country girl from South Carolina.” He told me he believed he had a SC quarter and he would go check his coins. Sure enough, to my greatest joy, he did have a SC quarter. He did a cut-out of the continent Africa on the SC quarter and I was immediately in love with this timeless piece, which now meant so much to me. Thank you, Phamily

I ordered on the internet and was a little unsure at first. However, the confirmation of the dispatch of the goods came very quickly. The delivery to Germany took a while but was very well packaged and the goods are just perfect. I was very happy about the friendly and helpful answer to the questions. I can only recommend this shop. Thank you again!I ordered over the Internet and was a little uncertain at first. But the confirmation of the dispatch of the goods came very quickly.

An interesting idea is to make jewelry from coins. It’s a little strange that in a store with this name there are no sets of coins for numismatists - they probably wander there from time to time!
