This Killer Whale pendant was hand cut from a Canadian half dollar that was minted only in 1998. The international year of the Ocean was 1998 and many countries around the world minted coins to commemorate that year. The design used on this coin was two killer whales swimming below the shadow of some mountains. Its a great size measuring just one inch in diameter so it works for anyone. The pendant comes with a sterling silver box chain available in four different lengths.
