$390 AUD

Crafted from silver, this antique double sovereign case has stood the test of time. The case is elegantly engraved with the letters JMC and opens to reveal two spring-mounted holding plates to each hold a sovereign. The Double Sovereign Case is timeless in purpose and will continue as a holder of heirloom coins. The case is beautifully stamped with the Old English hallmarks, and brings with it a world of nostalgia. It would double as a charming pendant, even without holding coins.
