Vintage Kuchi Coins: Large Mixed Size Coin Charms, 10 Coins / Jewelry Making, Belly Dancing, Tribal Pendants, Nomadic, Gypsy, Boho Decor
Fabulous authentic Kuchi Coins for jewelry making and decorating. These have been around for a long time; from Pakistan, Afghanistan and some Turkish coins included in the mix from 1950’s -1990’s (which are the newer ones). Each coin has an attached (welded or soldered) loop, that you can attach to your fabric, clothing or jewelry.
This is a mixed package of 10 charms, from small to large coins, ranging from 23-28mm diameter, with smooth or scalloped edges. Here and there you will see some square ones or a few of much larger size. These are very common between Belly Dancers and also seeing in the Gypsy Fabrics and Boho Jewelry. Some of them are worn down, and many of those are unreadable…..well, since I do not speak any of these languages, they are all unreadable to me ::chuckle::, but I think you know what I mean.
The Kuchi (Kochi) are a tribe of Sunni Muslim Nomads living in central Asia, in southeastern Afghanistan to the border of Pakistan. While the Kuchi are of the Pashtun tribe of Afghanistan, they are nomadic, accustomed to moving annually with their herds between summer pastures in Afghanistan and winter pastures in Pakistan. “Kuchi” is a Baluchistan word meaning “nomadic” or “wandering”.

✤ Keep in Mind:
Handmade items may vary in texture, shape, color and finish and may have some imperfections which make them apart from machine factory made beads. Make sure to read description and see pictures before purchasing and if you have questions, please don’t hesitate to ask!
Please note that, all my items are photographed up close and personal, so that you can see their beautiful details. Some items may appear larger than real size, so please check the measurements carefully to avoid any confusion. Though, we work hard to photograph them as close to the real color, keep in mind that lightning, props and background may cause a difference on the color. Color will also vary from monitor to monitor.
