Sapphire Lion Coin Necklace - Courage, Strength, Protection & Wisdom
The lion is a symbol of courage, strength, protection and wisdom.
This Ancient Greek sterling silver lion coin (replica) is adorned with 5 multi-colored sapphires. 18" sterling silver, cable chain.
Cast from an original, which I own. The original dates from 305-290 BC from Ancient Greece, city of Velia in Lucania, which is now Southern Italy. Silver Drachma. A beautiful example depicting a walking lion on one side and Athena wearing a winged crested helmet on the other.
