** PLEASE NOTE: This is the exact coin you will receive! As all of these ancient coins were made by hand (and have aged about 1000 years), they all have unique shapes and printings; and are therefore one of a kind.

These 10th Century coins were made supposedly anonymously in place of the earlier coins that depicted the Byzantine emperor. They feature the bust of Jesus Christ holding the gospel on one side (was printed upside down on this coin). On the back, they are inscribed with the latin cross combined with an X in the center and flourishes around the edge.

*** NOTE: Necklace comes with a card of authenticity and the explanation of what the coin is.
