8 Escudos Gold Coin in 18k Bezel
This beautiful pendant features a genuine Spanish 8 escudos gold coin minted in 1739. This coin has nice full features on both sides, and an interesting "square" hole, made back in the day with a square nail, a pirates booty perhaps? I like to think so. We mounted this coin in a nice simple 18 karat yellow gold bezel, perfect for either a man or a woman. The total weight of the gold is about 39.1 grams, the coin is approximately 90% pure gold and the frame is 18k or 75% pure. This gold coin is about the size of a US $20 gold piece and weighs almonst 1 oz.
