HOLD FAST - Brass Coin Necklace



Hand-crafted from start to finish, this stamped coin features the phrase “Hold fast.”

Historically, “hold fast” was a command given to sailors when approaching a storm, warning them to grip tight the ship’s rigging to avoid being washed overboard by the waves and rain as the ship plunged through the sea. This necklace will help remind you to weather whatever storm life may throw at you by holding fast to what is important.


  • Coin pendant is 1" in diameter.

Purchase this coin as a keychain instead of a necklace here.

If you are unsure about which chain length to order, please read our suggestions on the FAQ page.

Please note: All our brass pendants are raw brass, meaning they are not electroplated and will develop a beautiful patina over time. We recommend polishing it with a soft cloth to help keep your pendant's original shine if you prefer the bright metal look.

Family Motto

My wife and I had twin boys last February and in the days leading up to their birth we decided to come up with a family motto; something that we could hold onto in the coming days and the new adventure of parenthood. For a variety of reasons we came up with "Hold Fast". I purchased a pendent for my wife and I to wear to help us remember and purchased 2 to give to my boys when they are old enough. Love the quality and I anticipate them lasting a lifetime

Perfect for a Sailor

This is badass. The history and heritage behind the saying resonates. It’s perfectly executed and totally dope. I wear it under my uniform and give it a little pat pat when **** gets a little tough. IYAOYAS

well done

This was a fathers day gift and was very well done. My dad loved it and even though I ordered within the week of the holiday, it arrived just in time. I love the little sailor hat origami made from a map and the fact that the purchase helps to support a good cause. I do wish there would have been a little card with an explanation of the phrase included, but I was able to print a little something so that the meaning was not lost. Overall, a very happy experience with this company and a nice product.
