A classic century-old Indian Head Penny is beautifully displayed in a custom silver-tone bezel with Native American-inspired designs. The coin is surrounded by a ring of faux turquoise, and two faux red carnelian accents add a stunning accent to the outer design. Also included is an 18-inch silver tone rope chain that perfectly matches the bezel.
The Indian Head Penny is one of America’s most beloved coins. First made in 1859, it depicts Lady Liberty dressed as an Indian princess in a war bonnet. It was one of the first U.S. coins to feature a Native American. The design is a symbol of America’s westward expansion, as well as a moving tribute to Native Americans. The reverse features an oak wreath and the Union shield. The last Indian Head Penny was made over 100 years ago in 1909, and they were last seen in circulation long ago. Only a few remain for today’s collectors. The elegant pendant makes a superb accompaniment to any outfit and can be worn equally impressively at work, around the house, or at a formal occasion. Approx. 1” round, 18” chain
