Reproduction of a coin from the island of Aegina in the Saronic Gulf. The Aeginetans were great traders and their early 'turtle coins' are found abundantly in hoards all over the Greek speaking world. After the Persian Wars, Aegina's commercial importance declined in the face of Athenian dominance. In the mid 5th century BC, possibly following the Athenian conquest of Aegina in ca 456BC, the turtle was replaced by a tortoise and coinage output was much reduced.

Handmade for us in Greece, this jewellery collection is inspired by ancient Greek coins, the art and jewellery of the Minoan civilisation, familiar symbolic images and motifs, and the animals that played a significant part in ancient Greek culture. 

This pendant is made of sterling silver, hallmarked '925'.
