Vintage Georgivs V Shilling and Pence Exotic Figural Bracelet. Largest center shilling coin stamped 1943 from Melbourne Australia 1,580,000 were minted. Natural stone is Australian Dream Time Marble in yellow green and yellowish orange. Other smaller pence coins dating approximately 1910 covering the Edwardian to Art Nouveau Era, difficult with the cutout leaving guess work on each coin but appears to be the King Edward VII on one side and shield with Kangaroo and an emu, two indigenous animals of the Australian continent on the other side. Animals had previously been used on Australiaâ€™s token coinage since the mid-nineteenth century.
Through the cutouts I was able to put bits and pieces of words together â€“ D: G: OMN: Rex: IMP: Geo Givsvl: Silver Pence Advance Australin Shilling. Partial motifs of a star, Kangaroo, Emu, Ribbon, and a shield on various coins. From this was able to date the coins from pictures I found.
Most likely coins were gathered together, actually creating the bracelet in the Art Deco Era, a lonely G.I. away from home giving good luck charms of love for his sweetheart that is waiting. Makes you wonder who she might have been and the love story behind the bracelet. Much more, how and why an heirloom like this would have been sold! Oh, the charisma of it all.
