Silverware that you can use? That you can put in the dishwasher? That is hard enough that the edge won’t dull or the pattern wear down?

Oh, one last benefit is less polishing!
An interesting article by Brendan McConville the professor of history at Boston University. These silver communion spoons were built with specifically chosen silver coins. His article contains many topics that intrigue me such as repurposed coins, Guy Fawkes (which is this sunday) and Alan Moore. OK, the last one is a stretch.
