Italian Limited Edition Bee Lire Coin Pendant
*Shipping and Handling Included
This is a very special limited edition lire coin and one of the most sought after that has been created because it is the Bee Lire. Vittorio Emanuele III, who wanted to instill a sense of hope to push Italy out of economic crises, is depicted on the front of the coin. The obverse depicts a bee collecting nectar from a flower, an image inspired by ancient greek coins from Ephesis. The bee, a symbol of determination and hard work. I love the beautiful rope design frame of this pendant. It's such an important look when you wear it because it is a special piece of Italian history. If you always wanted to carry back your own lire coin from Italy and make it into a piece of jewelry, there is nothing more perfect than the bee lire pendant.
