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.
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.
The “Hold Fast” brass coin with 22” diamond cut chain was just what I’d expected and hoped for. Beautiful stamp in the brass, perfect weight around the neck. Additionally, the Maritime Crew threw in some extra pieces I was not expecting, to personalize the items—and that meant all the more. Definitely a loyal Maritime Supply customer from here on, and looking forward to purchasing/giving more items like these as gifts.
Definitely would buy again
