This pendant necklace features an exceptional highly collectible 24K Solid Gold 20 Yuan Panda Coin that is in exceptional condition. The center of the obverse is a depiction of The Hall of Prayer for Good Harvests located in the Temple of Heaven complex in Beijing. Chinese characters on top say "中华人民共和国", meaning the People's Republic of China and the bottom the year of issue (2003). The reverse shows portraits of the giant panda that changes every year (except for 2001 and 2002, which share the same design). Photos are taken under professional lighting and are magnified at 50x zoom to show details that may not be visible to the naked eye. The pendant is clearly hallmarked 18K on the pendant loop, and is hung on a 1.10mm thick, 18K solid gold (not hollow), 16” twist-rope chain necklace that is also clearly hallmarked 18K on the sturdy lobster claw clasp closure.

The practice of setting coins as jewels, known as ‘Gemme Numari’ - coin gems or nummary gems - traces back to Ancient Rome. As people journeyed the world, the coins acquired from their travels made for wonderful souvenirs that could then be engraved and set to be worn as necklaces and rings. This ancient tradition of coin jewelry that has an interesting look, showcases cultural heritage and makes for great pieces of conversation appealed to global taste thousands of years later. Coin jewelry is said to bring luck and good fortune to the wearer..
