Item Description:

Authentic Roman Coin encased in Pendant with Signature Rounded Box Chain. Pendant and chain available in solid 925 silver or solid 18K gold.

Authentic Coin Details:

Coin Type & Age: Silver Denarius, 161-180 AD
Emperor: Marcus Aurelius
Diameter/Weight: 17.5 - 18.5 mm / 3 - 3.8 g
Front/Back: Portrait of Emperor / Mythological & Military Themes

The Stoic philosopher-king whose journal, Meditations, is regarded as a philosophical masterpiece. Meditations is a window into a man's mental workshop; one in which an Emperor of colossal character is sculpted one thought at a time. In it we witness a man counsel himself through darkness to find peace for both himself and his empire.

Marcus’s pen strokes still guide the minds of the world’s greatest leaders on handling adversity with discipline, benevolence, rationality, and humility.

FOR THOSE WHOSE MINDS ECHO WITH THE DEEPEST WISDOM OF THE PAST, LET MARCUS AURELIUS GUIDE YOU.

Outstanding product and customer service

So I called the number provided on there site to ask some questions. Come to find out it was actually Mr. O'Neal that answered the phone. He was a gentleman over the phone, and helped me get the peice I wanted. When I received the necklace (The Philosopher), I noticed my coin looked different than advertised. Marcus Aurelius didn't have a beard, a laurel crown, and eyes were straight forward. I found out after doing some research that the coins with his face on them changed with time. I learned that the Denarii I had was of a young Marcus Aurelius, and was apart of the first set of Denariis made with his face on them when he was 24 to 25 years old. I hope they'll correct me if I'm wrong, but I absolutely love that they did that. To have something that's different from everyone else's is important to me. The quality of the jewelry is impressive as well. I am VERY happy with my purchase. I see myself buying another piece of jewelry from them 100%. I'm excited to see what they'll produce next.

fantastic gift for the modern aspiring stoic

Had been eyeing this for at least a month, when my girlfriend decided to buy as a Christmas gift. Couldn't be happier with the quality and ease of contact with the owners. Is a great physical reminder of how to live my best life.

Top Quality

I purchased the 22" Gold Chain Marcus Aurelius pendant, absolutely love it. Incredible quality, and an excellent remind to practice the teachings of Marcus and other stoics in daily life. The unboxing experience was also excellent and a lot of fun. Love it!

Also, the founder (one of them) was available all along the way, excellent service and communication. Shipped to Canada
