made in britain
A simple tie or lapel pin, embellished with a genuine upcycled sixpence. Handmade by me and exclusive to Pennyfarthing Designs.
This is a nostalgic gift for someone who is celebrating their 50th or 60th birthday.
I take a sixpence from the appropriate year and fix it into a simple, silver finish pin mount. The birth year is clearly shown on the coin.
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 pin will arrive in a simple black box with a bow. You may also choose to add a matching gift tag at checkout.
This pin can be ordered for either a 50th or a 60th birthday as standard.
If you are looking for a different year, please feel free to contact me via the 'ask seller a question' button. I may be able to find the coins you are looking for to create the perfect birthday gift.
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.
If you are looking for a 70th or 80th birthday tie pin, please see my listing http://www.notonthehighstreet.com/pennyfarthingdesigns/product/70th-or-80th-birthday-farthing-tie-pin
The pin is silver finish, embellished with a genuine sixpence coin.
Please polish occasionally using a soft jewellery cloth, to remove any marks and renew the lustre of the coin.
