Since perhaps the 13th century, people have been altering coins to make them into tokens of affection. These necklaces are inspired by our favorite antique maternally-themed "love tokens", originally engraved on the backs of seated liberty dimes from the 1880's. In our version, the backs are blank, but the edges still bear the grooved remnants of their past lives as American currency.
