R&R Legacy Craft Studio

Regular price $65.00

1 Available

This is an actual Egyptian 50 piastres coin that has been meticulously hand-cut with a jeweler's saw, and then set as a pin. Designed as a tie tack or lapel pin, but can be worn anywhere the post will fit.

The post is soldered, not glued, to the back of the coin for strength and durability. The deluxe clutch features a low-profile release that helps ensure that ties lie flat, while holding the pin more securely than other styles.

Cleopatra was the ruler of Egypt from around 51 to 30 BC. She was part of the Ptolemaic Dynasty, and descended from the Macedonian Greeks. Although she is often historically known in reference to her relationships with famous male figures such as Julius Caesar and Mark Antony, she was an intelligent and powerful leader. It is reported that she spoke up to a dozen languages and was educated in mathematics, philosophy and astronomy among other subjects.
