This sterling silver Canadian Loon pendant was hand cut from a Canada one dollar coin that was minted from 1987 – 2003. The coin features a loon swimming with an island in the background. The coin was also minted in a unique octagon shape versus round like most coins are minted. After we do all the hand cutting the piece is polished to a high luster and mounted on a sterling silver box chain. We have been offering this coin for over 30 years in our two tone finish and its always been a popular item for us, the sterling silver version is just as beautiful and perfect for the sterling silver lover.
