The history of this unique piece of art started when St. Helen found the Holy Cross in 326 AD.
She ordered to cut the cross in 2 separate pieces and when the sacred shavings were mingled with precious metals, the result was the first Konstantinata.
Nowadays we tend to offer them after the birth or the christening of a child but also as a gift to our loved ones. The golden coins are now made with various metals including gold and silver. They can be worn around the neck, usually with a gold or silver chain.
Ornated with a cross in front along with IC XC NI KA ( which means Jesus Christ conquers) and the images of St. Constantine and Helen holding the cross on the back.
