Rhode Island pins and Providence pins represent the smallest state in the United States of America and our capital city. Rhode Island is only 48 miles long and has 384 miles of shoreline. This East coast state, often called the Ocean State, abuts the Atlantic Ocean and is often referred to as the Ocean State. Rhode Island pins were designed as a tribute to our State, our City, our beautiful coastline, which offers endless enjoyment to residents and visitors alike.

The Providence Pins were created by Pins By Frank as a tribute to a segment of our states history. The Providence Independent Man statue was placed on top of the dome of the Rhode Island State House on December 18, 1899. It is 11 feet tall and consists of 500 pounds of gilded bronze. The many references to an “independent man” that were made during the discussion and planning of the design of the statue led to it being referred to as the “Independent Man.”today. The statue has only been down from his lookout once. On August 9, 1975, the statue was taken down for repair and a new coat of gold leaf. He was returned to his rightful place on July 20, 1976. Providence Pins are made in Rhode Island have been worn proudly to represent our amazing city and this small peace of our history.
