Our latest relics are these one-of-a-kind silver coins, which date back to 2nd century Yemen—once known as Arabia Felix for its desirable climate and abundant agriculture and spices. The people who used them were called Himyarites, and they were inspired by Romans coins, which they had just started trading with.
We’ve reclaimed these ancient coins and set them in buttery 18kt yellow gold, as a testament to the rich and storied history of the area. A portion of these proceeds from this sale will be donated to the International Rescue Committee to help the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Yemen.
