Whatever the case may be, we’ve compiled a list of our fifteen favorite high-end money clips. Each of these clips uses quality materials and features innovative and functional designs for optimal organization, durability, and–of course–style.
This clip is made from anodized aluminum and comes in a variety of colors and styles. The aluminum comes in black, natural gray, red, and blue, while the inlay comes in a black, modern, geometric design. With space for 7 credit cards and 10 bills, it holds everything you need. It also has extenders that can alter the clip’s width depending on what you’re carrying. M-Clip uses a heat treatment on their spring to ensure a long life, which they simultaneously back up with a 5 year warranty.
This slim, sleek clip is designed and manufactured in Italy by Sterling Manufacturers. Made from sterling silver, it boasts unbeatable shine as well as a modern striped design with a stylized thumb grip. Sterling Manufacturers polishes their clips by hand, and each one is engravable, so it makes a great birthday gift or a gift for groomsmen, graduation, or an anniversary.
Another great product from M-Clip, this stainless steel version is extra durable, and its inlay also makes it fashionable. Made from carbon fiber and enamel, the inlay of this M-Clip features a classic black cross-hatched pattern. This clip boasts M-Clip’s signature sliding design and securely holds roughly 5 cards and 10-15 bills. Thick enough to hold what you need, this M-Clip is also slim enough to fit easily in a front pocket without the bulge of a standard wallet.

If you’re looking for an unusual or unique money clip, or you’re a United States history buff, this Sabrina Silver clip is for you. Sporting a sleek design, the clip spotlights a real, vintage Morgan Dollar coin. The Morgan dollar coin was minted in the US between 1878 and 1904, with a one-year reprise in 1921. Its face features Lady Liberty in profile with the words “E. Pluribus Unum” over her head. The coin dates will vary, but the clip is designed so that the coin can be removed and cleaned or replaced. The clip itself is made from durable sterling silver and has an elegant high polished finish. And, as a nice bonus, there’s just enough room on the back for engraving.
Let’s just say this isn’t your father’s money clip. Obstructures’ “plate wallet” combines the slimness of a money clip with the functionality of a standard wallet. Designed to be small and slim, it is made from three laser-cut anodized aluminum plates held together by durable rubber O-rings. It utilizes a patent-pending rolling mechanism, facilitated by the O-rings and notches in the aluminum plates, to make opening and closing it easy while ensuring the items inside remain secure. The plates can be reconfigured according to your needs: put the “triangle” plate on the outside for easy access to cash or put it between the two rectangular plates as a divider. Plates can even be removed for a slimmer version. The A3 wallet easily fits bifolded US bills and weighs in at a svelte 2.7 ounces. As a bonus, Obstructures includes two extra rubber O-rings with each order.
This sleek, modern clip is manufactured from carbon fiber making it durable and–more importantly–super light. Though it only weighs 21g, this clip has a large surface area and uses a patented “aperture design” rather than a traditional “lip.” Just insert your thumb in the opening and push up to open the clip. It also comes with a German craft paper card protector, so you won’t have to worry about scratching the magnetic strip or surface of your credit cards. If black carbon fiber isn’t quite your style, Tightwad has a stainless steel version, as well.
This Tokens & Icons money clip features the Morgan Silver Dollar, minted between 1878 and 1904, with a one-year reprise in 1921. The clip itself is simple and modern and does not feature the typical “lip” of many other clips. Its simple design nicely offsets the classic coin, which was designed by engraver George T. Morgan. This clip highlights the coin’s reverse, which features an eagle clasping arrows and an olive branch with the phrase “In God We Trust” above it. Tokens & Icons guarantees the authenticity of the Morgan dollar coins used in their clips, including a Certificate of Authenticity with each clip. Coins vary in years from 1878-1899.
