Ancient I Ching Coin Necklace
The ancient Chinese tossed yarrow stalks and later coins to help make decisions which were based on the patterns of the toss as they related to the I Ch'ing, The Book of Change. These coins, often strung on a cord, typically had four characters on the front. Two could indicate the emperor who reigned during the period the coin was minted. Other markings may include the type of currency the coin represented, or references to good luck and special events. The reverse often denoted the mint at which the coins were produced.
I-ching coin is 1.18" suspended from a 24" l antique brass rolo chain. Total length of necklace 25"l.
Please note that these vintage coins are hundreds of years old and bear the natural patina and wear of the ages. Expect variations as two coins are alike.
Our necklace will come in a linen bag.
