Both the coin and the split ring are sterling silver.
These sterling silver Fijian sixpence were made only in 1942 and 1943.
The coin was made at the San Francisco mint - and is one of the very few sixpences ever made in America!
Coin is slightly larger and heavier than a U.S. dime.
A nice piece to wear on a necklace for any occasion, or as a lucky charm for a wedding!
Need a sterling silver necklace / chain to go with it? Send me a convo - I usually have some available for $10.
Note: photo is of previously sold piece, yours will be made to order and be virtually the same. Date used (1942 or 1943) will depend on availability). Multiples may be available - please ask for availability.
