From the late period of the Roman tetrarchy, this authentic bronze coin featuring the Emperor Licinius possesses a beautiful and prized green bronze patina, perfectly complimenting the rich 14KY simple polished solid gold pendant setting. The coin shows soft detail beneath the patina of fine elements in the artwork. Equally fitting for either a man or a woman to wear, no doubt, this piece will really make for a unique and interesting fine jewelry pendant in comparison to the vast amount of cliché, mass-produced jewelry found in nearly every store today.

In the early days of Christianity under the rule of the Roman Empire, Christians were persecuted, tortured and put to death. Those that were believers were extremely discreet in their faith because they had to be in order to survive. In 303 AD, the emperors Constantine I (later known as 'Constantine the Great') and Licinius signed the Edict of Tolerance. This put an end to the persecution of Christian converts and Christianity was recognized equal to other cults in the Empire. In the struggle that followed for establishing an autocracy in the Empire, Constantine I defeated Licinius. On a separate occasion, Constantine I went up against Maxentius and converted to Christianity just following a miraculous victory. This single historical conversion meant that the ruling emperor of all the Roman Empire was Christian and many changes followed that included the relocating of the Empire's center in 330 AD to the city Byzantium (then changed to Constantinople) in what is now modern day Istanbul, Turkey. A seldom seen coin of superb grade in this very highly recommended piece.
