Sorry, this item sold. Have pennyfarthingdesigns make something just for you, or try these other items:
I have created this lovely silver pendant from a vintage silver sixpence coin, dated 1962. (Please note, the photographs show a 1961 sixpence. Your 1962 sixpence will be in similar condition.) The sixpence is in near perfect condition and would make a great 50th birthday gift for anyone born in 1962. It is a lovely coin from a simpler time, when the Swinging Sixties were just getting under way in London.
The sixpenny coin was worth half a shilling, so there were 40 of them to a pound and it was generally known as a ‘tanner’. The first sixpence coin was minted in 1551 and they remained in circulation until 1971 when the UK introduced the decimal currency system used today.
The sixpence has often been used as a good luck charm and has been used by the RAF since WWII. One is also traditionally hidden in the middle of a Christmas pudding, to bring good luck to whoever is lucky enough to find it in their portion.
This sixpence coin would have remained in daily circulation for just 10 years, until the UK introduced its new decimal currency in 1971. Who knows where it has been lying for the last 40 years but now I have been lucky enough to find it and give it new life as a pendant for any 50th anniversary or birthday gift.
I have fixed the sixpenny coin into a silver plated frame and attached a bail which will allow you to thread it onto most necklace chains. I have photographed it on a simple black ribbon and cord necklace, adjustable from about 16-18 inches.If you would prefer me to attach a chain, or a length of black velvet ribbon, please feel free to contact me.
I can also create this pendant from a 1963 sixpence and other dates may be available. Please feel free to contact me.
