French Coin in Handmade Pendant Setting Vintage


This French 50 Centimes rests in a hand crafted setting made of recycled sterling silver wire . I make each setting by hand separately from the coin. The coin does not have a hole drilled in it or any metal soldered to it's edge.

The coin was designed byJoseph-François Domard and was minted from 1920 - 1929. The obverse of the coin has a reclining Mercury with a winged caduceus, rudder, and cornucopia. Mercury is surrounded by the motto COMMERCE INDUSTRIE and the year. The reverse features the coin value and the lettering CHAMBRES·DE·COMMERCE·DE·FRANCE BON POUR 2 FRANCS. The metal content of the coin is aluminum bronze.

Approximate Size: Length: 1.2 inch (including bail), Width: .75 inch , Inner Dimension of Bail: .20 inch

Excluding the year on the coin, your coin pendant will look like the pendant pictured. Each coin pendant is made by hand (not machine) and no two pieces are exactly alike. If you are looking for a specific year, let me know, I may have it in my collection.
