Libertad Coin Necklace

Regular price $95.00

An antique Argentine coin depicting the freedom head Oudine, wearing a Phrygian cap, on the front and a grain sprig, cow’s head and numeral 10 on the back.

I purchased the original coin at the San Telmo flea market in Buenos Aires years ago to wear as a necklace. When I found it there was a sizable, and well worn, drilled hole -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 before having it cast into solid brass and sterling using the ancient technique of lost wax casting.

The Libertad coin pendant is available in solid brass, solid sterling, and gold vermeil.

The brass and gold vermeil pendants are on a 14k gold fill chain.

Available in solid 14k yellow gold on request; please email us at studio@rackkandruin.com.

The Libertad coin is 3/4" in diameter and is fixed onto a 20" beaded curb chain.
