Danish Coin Pendant


A 1964 copper Danish 5 Ore Coin handset into a hinged slim Sterling Silver Pendant.

Featuring on one side the number 5 and two ears of wheat. On the reverse there is the scrolling crowned R insignia of King  Frederick IX.

This coin has a smooth deep midtone patina with some underlying darker stains.

So if you like the look of it, don't polish the actual coin as it has taken decades to acquire this colour and you wouldn't want it to look brand new !

However careful use of a dry "Silver Polishing Cloth" on the silver will put the shine back on it when it starts to oxidize.

The silver suspension ring (5.5 mm) will comfortably take a chord, chain or choker.

I realize this is not a particularly valuable coin, but it's refined sculptural qualities and nostalgia value have always appealed to me.

We took this old Danish coin to Indonesia where our Silversmith hand set it for us in Sterling Silver.

We had a number of different coins done and each is a one of a kind using genuine coins we've collected over the years.
