This beautiful Vermont pendant was hand cut from a United States quarter that was minted in 2001 . The coin is part of a set known as the state quarter series. It started in 1999 and ran for 10 years to complete the 50 state set. The design on this coin features a mountain with a maple sugar operation in the foreground. After we did all the cutting on the coin we plate the pendant in our 14 karat gold and rhodium finish to bring out the best features of the design. The pendant comes with a 14 karat gold plated snake chain that is available in four different lengths for you to choose from.
