Tibetan Golden Snow Lion Coin Necklace

$89.00

Price: $89.00

Item#:2001493

Qty: This item is out of stock.





Since the first half of the 20th century, the mythical, celestial snow lion has been the national protector of Tibet, blazing with fearlessness and representing dominance over the Himalayan mountains. Before Tibet was incorporated into the People's Republic of China, the snow lion was found on the country's coins, stamps, and the national flag, and it is still a symbol of the Tibetan independence movement.


This highly detailed 24-karat gold-plated jewelry reproduces a Tibetan sho coin minted in the early 20th century. Artisans working in Kathmandu, Nepal, cut the design out using a special wire saw.


Handcrafted in Nepal. Adjustable from 16" to 20". Pendant is 1" diameter.

Roman emperors commissioned thousands of different designs and denominations of coins and people from Britain to Spain to Syria still turn up Roman coins while plowing their fields and digging in their gardens. For collectors, there's nothing more satisfying than pinpointing when an ancient bronze coin was first minted. The reproduction coins in our multistrand necklace depict an emperor on horseback under the words OPTIMO PRINCIPI, Latin for "highest prince." Several emperors used this title, but it's most often found on coins minted by the first-century emperor Trajan.
