Religious
Venice Silver Grosso Coin Jewelry

Silver grosso coins of Venice Italy feature a religious theme in their design.   The coins, which display the image of Christ and Saint Mark, make exceptionally beautiful and very popular pieces of jewelry when mounted in a gold bezel.

Venice, Italy is known today for its grand canals and artistic grandeur.  But, several centuries ago, Venice was of greater importance, reigning as the leading maritime power in the Christian world.  Her historic coinage, dating from the Middle Ages, set the standard for coins for the next 700 years and were among the most widely accepted form of currency in the Mediterranean region.  Each coin, which features the image of Christ on one side and the Doge, or Duke of Venice and Saint Mark on the other, is easily attributed to the ruling Doge of the time period and thus can be accurately dated.

Certificates of Authenticity accompany all Religious Venice Silver Grosso coin jewelry.  View a typical New World Treasures photo type Certificate of Authenticity.
