Handcrafted from a genuine 1928 silver Irish Florin, this unique piece shows the Leaping Salmon in all her glory. The salmon was specifically chosen to represent the Irish fisheries and game fishing throughout the land.
As a cut coin, this imagery is transformed into a breathtaking example of historic engraving.
Hand crafted by Stuart Richards exclusively for Silver State Foundry, this coin was hand selected for authenticity and detail.
Each small area was pierced before the background was removed using a jeweler's saw with very fine blades. Finally, the raw edges were filed and sanded smooth to create a finish beyond compare.
In our Reno, NV studio we've added a loop and jump-ring out of sterling silver, turning it into a stunning pendant. It comes with a 22" sterling silver ball chain so you can slip this necklace on as soon as it arrives.
Removing the background of a coin to reveal the engraver's original vision is a time consuming and painstaking process. As a result, this 1928 Irish Florin is the only one like it in the world!
