Lettering: ÍSLANDS KONUNGUR Translation: Kingdom of Iceland At the beginning of World War II, Iceland was a sovereign kingdom in personal union with Denmark, with King Christian X as head of state. Iceland officially remained neutral throughout World War II. However, the British illegally invaded Iceland on 10 May 1940. On 7 July 1941, the defence of Iceland was, again illegally, transferred from Britain to the United States, which was still a neutral country until five months later. On 17 June 1944, Iceland dissolved its union with Denmark and the Danish monarchy and declared itself a republic, which it remains to this day. • quantity 1 • demonetized {no longer in circulation} polished Bronze coin • diameter: 15 mm {tiny coin} • weight: 1.57 g ***Choose from drop down menu *** {2 mm thick cords} 22" black cotton necklace 24" brass ball chain {lightweight 5 g} 2-1/2" brass snake keychain with snap end {see last photo} **If you need a different length cotton necklace, leave a note upon checkout** facebook.com/coinedJewelry instagram.com/coinedJewelry twitter.com/coinedJewelry pinterest.com/coinedJewelry tumblr.com/blog/coinedJewelry
