Gold Chi-Rho Coin Necklace


The Chi-Rho Coin Necklace features a replica of a Roman coin that circulated during the fourth century. The double-sided coin contains on one side the signature chi-rho symbol, and on the reverse, Constantine's son, Constantius II.

The chi-rho symbol, formed by superimposing the first two letters of “Christ” in Greek (chi=X; rho=P), has become one of the most common Christograms in Christian art and continues to be used in churches around the world to represent victory over sin and death. The symbol was made famous by Constantine the Great, the first Christian Roman emperor. After a divine vision, Constantine placed the emblem on shields during a watershed battle he lead to victory.

Constantine remains a controversial figure, but his contributions to Christianity from ending Christian persecution, and all religious persecution during that era, to his patronage to the church and clergy, have been compared in influence to that of Apostle Paul.
