Half Shekel Pewter Necklace

Half Shekel coin necklace is inspired by a coin from the late First Temple period. This coin, at the equivalent of half a shekel, was given as a donation to the Temple for the purchase of sacrifices offered on behalf of the whole nation. On the inside of the coin is a branch from which three pomegranates emerge and an inscription in ancient Hebrew: `Holy Jerusalem'; On the back is the inscription `Half Shekel`, in the middle of the back is the Omer Cup (from the vessels of the Temple) and above it is the letter A to mark the first year of the great rebellion against the Romans. The coin was found during a dirt sifting originating from the Temple Mount.

    Nice replica of a real gold encased coin which I once had but had to sell when in hard times.

    I am happy with the purchase and I did receive a certificate that the coin is indeed authentic which makes the purchase even more exciting It’s a piece I am finding goes with so much and adds a lovely sophisticated touch. Lucky me I was able to get it on sale too!
