This sterling silver Alligator pendant was hand cut from a coin minted in the country of Gambia in 1971. The coin was on the large side so with this piece we remove the outer rim of the coin so only the Alligator is left. I have been selling this piece for many years in our gold and silver finish and decided to start doing it in sterling silver also. I am a silver person myself and actually like the sterling version more. The pendant comes with a sterling silver box chain and is available in four different lengths.
