A stainless steel hip flask which I embellish with a genuine upcycled coin from the birthday year. Exclusive to Pennyfarthing Designs.

This is a very special gift for someone who is celebrating their 50th, 55th, 60th, 70th or 80th birthday.

You may choose to have your hip flask embellished with a sixpence, farthing or halfpenny depending on the birth year. I then take your choice of coin from the appropriate year, fix it into an attractive mount (please see photographs) and attach it to a stainless steel hip flask.

Please remember however, that the design of all coins changed frequently, usually on the accession of a new monarch. If there is a specific design you would like, please check that it is available for the year you are ordering.

The hip flask is a 6oz size, perfect for taking the tipple of choice along to a chilly sporting event or summer festival.

Please bear in mind that these are genuine circulated coins. Although I make sure that they are as near perfect as possible, there may occasionally be small signs of their age. I hope that this simply adds to their charm.

Your hip flask will arrive in a plain black box,with a bow.

This hip flask can be ordered for a 50th, 55th, 60th, 70th or 80th birthday as standard.

I also have small stock of 1970 halfpennies, minted but never circulated.

If you are looking for a different year, please feel free to contact me. I may be able to find the coins you are looking for to create the perfect birthday gift.

made from:

The hip flask is made from stainless steel, embellished with a genuine coin.

Please polish if necessary using a soft jewellery cloth, to remove any marks and renew the lustre of the coin.


The flask measures 11 cms by 9.5 cms

    Unfortunately, for the price of this item I would have expected a better quality product in both feel and looks. The retaining catch and lid appears to be chrome plated plastic not metal as I expected and is very loose at the hinge. I doubt with use that this will last the life of the flask without becoming detached or breaking off. The lattice type surround for the sixpence mount was not flush fitting at the edges (3 and 9 o'clock positions), as the flask body is curved. This does not look good and may catch and come off. This would look better shaped to follow the contour of the flask body and fit flush. There were also some small but noticeable marks on the body of the flask when inspected closely. If you want a hipflask that is sturdy, robust, usable and long lasting and not an ornament for the sock drawer then there may well be other alternatives available. I would not buy this item again.
