Details

"These cufflinks elegantly represent a historical snippet of Guatemala's past," says Pablo Castellanos. Working with sterling silver, he replicates the Macaco coin, the first metal coin used in Colonial Guatemala, which replaced the use of cocoa beans. Part of the currency used between 1733 and 1752, the macaco got its name from the Spanish moneda macuina, or "not round money." The original imagery features a cross flanked by castle towers and lions, the coat of arms associated with the Castille crown of the 12th century Spain.
