Japanese 100 Yen Coin Pendant 14kt Gold Filled Necklace Chain
What a wonderful gift for the coin enthusiast! This beautiful Japanese 100 Yen coin is mounted in a 14 kt gold filled handmade bezel. The corrugated decorative bail is 14 kt gold filled. A special gold filled bezel wire is used to make this handmade bezel; the outside wire is rounded while the inside of the wire is grooved so that the coin fits inside the bezel. Once the bezel wire is cut, the two ends are filed then soldered together using hard gold solder, then polished to a brushed finish. The coin then is placed within the bezel. A gold filled oval loop was then soldered to the top of the bezel to accommodate a gold filled bail.
The mounted coin pendant is 1.5 inch in from top of bail to bottom of pendant and 9/10 wide. in diameter. The 14 kt gold filled chain is made of oval links that are 2mm wide and 19 inches in length.
The current design for the 100 Yen coin was first issued in 1967. The metallurgy was changed from the former 60-30-10 ratio of silver-copper-zinc to a ratio of 75-25 copper-nickel, with the weight and diameter of the coin unchanged. The reverse side was changed to show sakura blossoms and the denomination in Japanese.
A cherry blossom is the flower of any of several trees of genus Prunus, particularly the Japanese Cherry, Prunus serrulata, which is sometimes called sakura after the Japanese.
Cherry blossoms are richly symbolic, and have been utilized often in Japanese art, manga, anime, and film, as well as at musical performances for ambient effect. The flower is also represented on all manner of consumer goods in Japan, including kimono, stationery, and dishware.
