** PLEASE NOTE: This is the exact coin you will receive! As all of these ancient coins were made by hand (and have aged about 2100 years), they all have unique shapes and printings; and are therefore one of a kind.
MEDUSA was the gorgon of Greek legend that was cursed with snakes for hair and turned those who looked upon her to stone. Her side of the coin roughly translates to "to the foresight of the rulers".
NIKE: The ancient Greek goddess of victory, Nike is shown here trumpeting her horn in celebration of, well, victory. She is also the goddess of strength and speed.
*** NOTE: Necklace comes with a certificate of authenticity.
