NYMPH SILVER COIN PENDANT
340 - 294 B.C.
This stunning coin is a GENUINE ancient Greek silver drachm showing a
beautiful head of a nymph with the reverse showing an eagle grasping a
serpent. The setting is designed to be worn with the nymph showing
outward but the reverse is shown for reference because this is such a
superb and rare example of this coin. The coin was minted in the
early fourth century B. C. on the ancient island of Euboia
in Greece. It is mounted in a richly designed solid 14K yellow
gold Greek Key design bezel pendant setting which wonderfully
compliments the ancient style of the artwork in the coin as well as
contrasts with the color and luster of the pure silver ancient coin.
