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

this piece of scrip was for the william ann coal co, redeemable for 10 cents in goods. this coin is pretty small in size with a the initials WA stamped through the coin (the mint did that, not me). definitely a unisex piece, perfect for yourself or your sweetie with a W initial? or someone with washington state pride? the possibilities are endless! the coin is just over 3/4" in diameter.

this necklace comes on a vintage brass 24" curb chain with lobster 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! and YES we ship internationally! we ship via US Parcel Post which includes delivery confirmation. we're also happy to fancy up the packaging if this is a gift. get in touch!

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!
