The Lion of the Tribe of Judah Pendant
This stunning Pendant began its life as an Israeli 5 Lirot coin minted from 1978 to 1980. The coin is known by some as the Lion of Megido or the Roaring Lion Coin. As a Christian, I think of this as The Lion of the Tribe of Judah Coin. The Israel Mint explains the coin as a Lion and the Emblem of the State of Israel. The Lion first appeared on the Seal of Shema, slave of Jeroboam, from the period of the Kingdom of Israel dating 8 BCE.
The coin is no longer used as Israeli currency and has been a sought after collector's coin. Personally, I think it makes a beautiful pendant that both Men & Woman would like in their jewelry collection.
The coin is 30mm in diameter by 2mm thick with a plain edge. It's made out of Cupronickel and has the appearance of silver. Israel can be found on the face of this coin in Hebrew, Arabic, and English. After the design was cut out it was polished and it remains in its original finish.
Please Note: The Pendant comes with a bail that will allow up to a 3.5mm chain. The Star of David Display Cady is sold separately on our Wood Products page. The Chain is not supplied with the Pendant, its only for display purposes.
In the future, this item may be offered as Gold Plated.
