this unisex pendant is made from an authentic coin from a 1900's coal mining camp.

this piece of scrip was made by the harlan collieries company, redeemable for 25 cents in goods. a miner's shovel and pick axe are crossed in the middle of the coin. the diameter of the coin is 7/8" (see the size in relation to the penny!) i LOVE this piece; i had a slightly nicer coin that was oaties' first sale and had been looking for another one ever since! definitely a unisex necklace; perfect on a guy or girl!

the necklace comes on a silver colored 24" curb chain with spring clasp. any other length of your choosing is possible, just specify in the notes box when purchasing!

ABOUT COAL SCRIP: throughout the first half of the 20th century, many U.S. coal mining camps manufactured their own currencies, sometimes paying miners' salaries exclusively in this scrip. couple that with inflated prices at general stores, restaurants, etc, which were the only places the miners could spend money, and you're left with a bunch of employees unable to save money, or even in debt. oh america...

ABOUT US: we try to pick the most unique and interesting coins possible, and due to the circulation, i can say that all pieces are pretty much one of a kind. we lovingly drill each piece out, and build our own chains, so any length is possible!

please email with any questions. we're also up for trying to seek out a particular coin for you, whether it be from your home state, favorite in initial, or number. talk to us! and see other coin necklaces for sale in our shop!
