Each pewter medallion measures 1 3/8″ in diameter (making it a little larger than a Kennedy Half Dollar). They depict our logo which is based on the ancient Irish legend of the Salmon of Knowledge. (See the “Why the Fish?” link on the main shopping page to learn more.) The back of each medallion is engraved in the center with “Daltaí na Galilge”(Our name, meaning Students of the Irish Language). Around the outer edge of the reverse side is engraved: “Tír gan Teanga Tír gan Anam” (Our motto, meaning “A nation without a language is a nation without a soul”.)
Two versions are offered.
The PIN/BROOCH version has a hinged pin and clasp in back so that it can be secured through clothing and worn on a lapel, collar, hat or elsewhere.
The KEY CHAIN/PENDANT version has a metal loop to allow you to attach it to a key chain. Or you can remove the loop and attach your own chain to wear it as a pendant.
