Mio Amore Necklace
“You may have the universe if I may have Italy.” – Giuseppe Verdi
About the coin:
This was a commemorative issue to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the kingdom of Italy. In the field there are two standing figures: the female represents Italy and the male Rome. Italy has her left hand on a plow adorned with ears and fruits. Behind the figures, there is a giant merchant ship. Its value was 10 centesimi.
Genuine Italian coin. Copper pendant backing hand-riveted to the coin. 31" solid copper chain with large links. No clasp... it just slips over your head.
