A quintet of fearsome golden eagles guard your neck in this unique neckpiece made with 1954 coins from Osterreich (known to English speakers as Austria). Inspired by freedom and strength, the golden eagle has been adopted as a national emblem by Austria, Germany, Mexico, Albania, and Kazakhstan.
Vintage mixed metals. Coins mounted in tension clasps on chain by unknown maker. Converted to necklace by Feather & Foxglove using additional wing-inspired chain. Measures 19" long. Each coin drop is 1.5 inches.
Golden Eagle, Aquila chrysaetos, is a massive raptor and a fierce, fast predator. One of the largest predatory birds on Earth, they're capable of taking big kills - anything from seals to pronghorn sheep! But they prefer to grab small to medium land mammals. Even a speedy jackrabbit can't outtrun a hungry golden eagle.
Feather & Foxglove shares a portion of sales to support wildlife conservation and animal welfare.
