The Enamel Usually Followed The Outline Of The Coin Design, With Color Applied In Individual Layers. The Process Was Complicated And Time Consuming, And Few Of These Coins Have Survived.This Silver Shilling Dated 1820 Is A Beautiful Example Of This Long Lost Craft. Coin Will Be Shipped .Pendant Includes A Descriptive Brochure On British Enamelled Coins. - Border Metal: Sterling Silver - Diameter: 1" -
