A beautiful coin from Belarus
I started the journey into coin jewelry by first discovering the fun of collecting coins from around the world. Often I would find something special, it was a fun treasure hunt.
This coin from Belarus celebrates a tradition of Europe, Candlemas. Some celebrate with a festival of lights (candles)
It is celebrated on February 2nd, at the darkest time of winter.
For others it is either a Christian or Jewish tradition.
Regardless, this coin is a beautiful design and rather rare. Belarus only issued 3,000 of these coins in total, and I have made 3 of them into coin Jewelry.
I love sharing the interesting stories behind these coins. It is one way to explore the world, and learning more about animals and nature important to each country.
