This is an update to my original Philosopher Coin. It now has a hole for a Split Ring, for necklace mounting. The Philosopher Coin shows the geometric aliment between positive and negative effects of positive and negative actions. Being good as it's perks and it's downsides. So does being Evil. The arrows loop around to show, further illuminating the connection between polar opposites, such as selflessness and greed. The purpose of this coin is to provide fodder for consideration of one's actions as well as the actions of others.

@Ember232 I am not berating you. I'm saying I've done the best I can, and there isn't much more that can be done. The word location is very important, I can't reverse the side of one side or another. Running through the arrows would disrupt the flow. The arrows are critical to understanding. This is not meant to be jewelry, it's an educational tool. Making it a pendant is really an afterthought, to make the coin more portable. You should be a little less easily offended and a bit more observant.

If the coin is mirrored, then it likely could be placed many other locations. I also am disinclined to support a seller that berates and argues reviews by potential customers, no matter how learned they may be on the subject matter, be an expert or a casual observer.

@Ember232 If you've seen both sides of the coin, you'd know it's in the ONLY place that hole would fit. Keep in mind, there is a front *and* a back. English words take up a set amount of space. This really is as good as it can possibly be. This coin represents years of work and study. I'd be more curious to know if you can grasp it's deeper implications? I fear I shall go to my grave being the only person who understands this geometry.

I like the look of it - but perhaps putting the coin hole in a more balanced place? It looks a bit random where it is. Perhaps through one of the arrows bases? Or at least evenly spaced between the work and the arrow? I'd be much more inclined to buy if this were the case.
