For just shy of a thousand of years, the face side of most any ancient Roman coin varied, depending who was in power. However, virtually every coin minted during the Roman Empire had Romulus being suckled by a wolf. Romulus and his brother Remus, after being saved from the Tiber river by a wolf (which represents the God of war), supposedly founded Rome. Until Rom knocked his brother off so he could be the head guy. Luckily, the coin from which our charm is copied (and a damn good copy too) is more likely from the time of the Christians in Rome and there’s nary a sign of a single murderous brother, nor that of a wolf. Whew.
This 14kt Yellow Gold Spiral Link Charm bracelet with its Roman Coin replica is a stunner and boy is it heavy. The 14kt gold charm is a copy (a VERY good one – I couldn’t tell it apart from photos of the original) of a coin used in Roman times. We estimate the bracelet and charm are from the mid-50’s of the last century. 36.0g of gold. All in one place.
The bracelet and charm were appraised in May of 2015 and together the calculated replacement value is $3325.00. It’s a steal at our price.
