This is a necklace of an 18ct gold vermeil pendant and chain based on a replica coin of an ancient 'Drachma of Aegina', an island of Attica. A mould was taken from a 540BC coin that was not only the first Greek, but also European, coin used as currency of the time.
It depicts a turtle, the badge of the state of Aegina, which was the symbol of Aphrodite that protected travel and sea trade.
The 18ct gold vermeil disc is 17mm in diameter and the chain is 46cm in length.
