These charms are copies of actual antique coins TierraCast® chose to manufacture because of their interesting appearance. The Larin is actually a 1/4 Larin denomination coin from the Maldive Islands in the Indian Ocean and was minted in the years just before 1900 AD under the rule of Ibrahim Nur Al-Din Iskandar. The population of the Maldives was converted to Islam in 1153 AD, hence the inscriptions on the coin are in Arabic.
These TierraCast® charms are made in the United States from culinary grade, lead-free pewter.
