Gold Mounted Silver Roman Coin and Belcher Chain Necklace
An original and rare silver Roman coin, a UK metal detector find, bought by Badgers Velvet from an antiquities dealer, has been encased in a 9ct circular coin mount and attached to an 17" 9ct gold belcher chain.
The coin, slightly oval in shape probably due to wear, has a head on one side and a figures on the reverse but we have no further information about the age. An important part of the appeal of this jewellery is the mystery and history imbued in each piece and that we can give new life and purpose to a lost object.
Diameter is 20mm (just under 1")
We also have un mounted coin necklaces here
