Every coin Tells a story...The obverse design was based on Goddess of Liberty, Marianne of France. Before Marianne became the symbol of the Republic, she was the goddess of Liberty.
She wore Roman clothing and held a red Phrygian cap on top of a spear. The Phrygian cap used to be worn in ancient Rome by freed slaves to show their liberated status.
When the Revolution began in 1789, the French people looked to the goddess of liberty for inspiration in their struggle for liberty. Later, the Revolutionaries adopted her red cap and it became a symbol of their Revolution. After that, "Marianne" figure was being used for nearly 200 years in different french coins.

My name is Meran Shavit and my passion for coins stems from my love of history and meaning. I love to work with Israeli coins as each one has a biblical symbol and significance. They are also aesthetically beautiful and unique in their design.
Transforming coins into pieces of jewelry excites me for two reasons: each piece takes on a whole new meaning, and seeing someone actually wearing it gives me as much pleasure as it does the owner. I have always been interested in special and unique jewelry and a few years ago I began experimenting with making jewelry out of old coins. The road to transforming coins into jewelry was long, but I enjoyed every minute and learned all the steps involved in the process.
It starts with identifying coins that are solid enough to withstand extreme pressure and high temperatures. Of these, I select only coins that commemorate special historic events (such as battles from the War of Independence), national symbols, and portraits of national heroes and admired presidents. In my studio I turn the coins into single or double band rings for men and women, medallions necklaces and bracelets, and other items that I custom-design for my clients.
