This Celtic sixpence Necklace has an Irish Wolfhound dog on one side and an Irish harp on the other.  The Wolfhound was first named for its ability to rid an area of wolf intrusions. It is generally the largest dog breed on earth, surpassing the Great Danes. Ownership of these were once reserved for the high born and were used in Celtic wars dragging targeted soldiers from their horses or chariots.  Today, the breed is quite more docile.  

The domed coin is made of nickel, or copper and nickel, and is attached to a brilliant cable chain with a Celtic Knot Bail and Green Irish Connemara Marble. Connemara is found within a single mountain range off the western coast of Ireland in Connaught Province.

Coin dates range from 1928 to 1969.
