Truly, beautiful handcrafted all American made U.S. Jefferson Nickel “Sacred White Bison” Coin Necklaces with Plain Bezel, are made from new uncirculated (2005) U.S. "Sacred White Bison" Nickels. Initially, the coins are first layered in 24K gold. The figures are highlighted and brought to life with rich pure silver, the silver work is completed by hand. This process and exclusive work turns these coins into stunning and true works of art. The White Bison has always been very sacred and meaningful to the Native American. Some believe that the White Bison was sent from the Creator to bless all that came in contact with it. Some also believed that the White Bison would bring prosperity and good luck. The coins are then hermetically sealed to prevent wear in a clear, hard acrylic coating.
