Joseph’s Chain is made with real copper Pfennigs from National-Socialist Germany minted during the Third Reich era – 1933-1945. The copper coin has been highly polished and framed into a sterling silver necklace. It represents an era where currency stood for labour, goods, and merit, rather than interest and debt.
Joseph’s Chain is the first creation of more to come and is named after Joseph Goebbels, the Minister of Propaganda in National-Socialist Germany. The name “Joseph” is Hebrew in origin and means “God shall add”, but more specifically the God of Israel “Yehovah” shall add.
Joseph in the book of Genesis was the most beloved son of Israel. Joseph overcame prison and was risen to become the right hand of Pharaoh. He saved Egypt through the grace of God and became most loved by the peoples of the nations.
“And Pharaoh took off his signet ring from his hand, and put it upon Joseph’s hand, and arrayed him in vestures of fine linen, and put a gold chain about his neck;
And he made him to ride in the second chariot which he had; and they cried before him, ‘our hearts to you’, and he made him ruler over all the land of Egypt”. Genesis 41, 43:43.
