This small silver necklace drop was made out of a sterling coin set into a piece of aircraft plexiglass. The back of the plexiglass was painted red.
This type of trench art is a typical item from Australia/ New Guinea using Australian coins. I have several similar necklaces-- some with "New Guinea" engraved on the silver.
This was produced by locals and was very popular with US service members serving in the Pacific.
