Tanzania Coin Pendant - Decagon - Bull, corn, cereals, bananas - East Africa Wor

I make these out of a 5 Shilingi coin from Tanzania (this version was in circulation 1990-1993).  This unique decagonal (10-sided) coin features a bull, corn, cereals, and bananas on the one side.  The other side shows the country name, the president, flowers and the year 1993.  

I drill a hole on the coin and file away the sharp edges.  I create a patina to make the images pop and polish with Renaissance Wax to protect the surface metal.

Height of the pendant is 27.5mm (that is about 3mm bigger than a US quarter).  
The metal composition of the coin is nickel plated steel.

 

 As a pendant it comes on a stainless steel, double jump ring with a free stainless steel ballchain (Size #3).

As a keychain it comes on a larger double jump ring.
