Add a bit of history to your jewelry collection! From antique coins, this necklace features the image from the Excelsior coin hand casted into a medallion in silver.
Minted in 1787, the New York Coppers obverse bears the legend EXCELSIOR (Ever Upward) below the state seal of New York; an oval shield bearing a sun rising behind a mountain range with the sea at the base. At right stands the figure Justice; at left, Liberty. At the top of the image, an eagle stretches its wings while perched on a globe.
