Moon and Star

For this cut coin pendant we have used a nickel coin from the US.
You can have this design on a coin of your choice.

Note : Coin availability may vary with time.

A star and crescent moon form the basis of symbols widely found across the ancient world, with examples attested from the Eastern Mediterranean, Persia and Central Asia.
The symbol emerged into popular use during the 19th century as a modernistic national symbol for the Ottoman Empire during the Westernizing Tanzimat reforms. The Ottoman flag of 1844 with a whitestar and crescent on a red background continues to be in use as the flag of the Republic of Turkey with minor modifications. Other states formerly part of the Ottoman Empire also used the symbol, including Tunisia, Libyaand Algeria. The same symbol was used in other national flags introduced during the 20th century, including the flags of Azerbaijan, Pakistan, Malaysia, and Mauritania.
