Hello! I have been collecting mostly Romans but also some ancient Greek coins for years now. I decided to make some of the more common coins into pendants. I started just giving these away to friends and family, and quickly learned that people really like them. Especially because I give some background info on the coin. What type of coins do you think would be nice to add to my inventory? I tried to strike a balance between cost of the coins + quality of the coin (not too expensive, but certainly with identifying features).



Would be cool to hear what I try next.

People who wear necklaces would want to see the item. And the dark fourth century coins can be a challenge. A good cheap starting place might be a lot of larger byzantine follis coins with Christ, a Cross, or/and the latin letters saying in greek Christ is King of Kings. You'd have to shape the bezel by hand as they are not at all round very often like the one in your example. And you'd have an easy to read 1000 year old Christian relic in some respects. (I realize it is not guys, but it would be way to think of it as it is a picture that is 1000 years old.) See the examples below.

And all the auction houses have these lots for sale. But you need big easy to see coins. You can also sometimes get some low grade but obvious large horse coins of Carthage that might be nice.

I have seen some ancient coins necklaces on ebay, etsy, maybe Amazon if I remember correct.
I used to sell some modern coin necklaces on local markets many years ago, I was using Stainless Steel Pendant Bases, cheap Chinese from ebay.
People are always happy to put on coins necklaces.
A tip to save money is to focus on coins that have the side will be on front in good grade and the other fade off, this will keep the price low.
Carthage coins are awesome, also Maroneia and Kyme horses. At Gergis you can find Sphinx etc
