Libertad Coin Pendant

Libertad Coin Pendant

from 70.00

An antique Argentine coin depicting the freedom head Oudine, wearing a Phrygian cap, on the front and a grain sprig, cow’s head, grain sprig and number ten on the back.

When I found the original coin at the San Telmo flea market in Buenos Aires years ago I knew I wanted to wear it as a necklace, especially since it had a sizable, and well worn, drilled hole when I found it (maybe someone else had already worn it for years before my discovery?). After many years of wearing it myself, and having people inquire about it, I filled in the original hole and soldered on a decorative bail for the chain and before having it cast into solid brass and sterling using the ancient technique of lost wax.

Brass coin comes on brass chain and sterling coin comes on sterling.

18” chain with additional 1.5” of adjustment chain.
