THE HAILE Selassie Coin Necklace
THE HAILE Selassie Coin Necklace is handcrafted from an authentic antique Ethiopian coin. Haile Selassie, born Ras Tafari Makonnen, was Ethiopia's Emperor from 1916 to 1974. He is a member of the Solomonic Dynasty who traced his lineage to Emperor Menelik I. His internationalist views saw Ethiopia become a more involved player in global politics through its membership to the United Nations, but some say at the expense of the freedoms of his own people. Selassie is held in high regard by Rasta as a messianic figure. His name Haile means in Ge'ez "Power of" and Selassie means" trinity".
