A pair of silver cufflinks for a 50th birthday by Pennyfarthing Designs, with 1962 coins.

I have created this lovely little pair of silver cufflinks from a matching pair of vintage sixpence coins, dated 1962. They are in near perfect condition and would make a great 50th birthday gift for anyone born in 1962. They are lovely coins 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 as such 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.

These sixpenny coins would have remained in daily circulation for almost 10 years, until the UK introduced its new decimal currency in 1971. Who knows where they have been lying for the last 40 years but now I have been lucky enough to find them and give them new life as cufflinks for any 50th anniversary or birthday gift.

These lovely cufflinks would also look fabulous adorning any Victorian or Steampunk sleeves and are equally suitable for men or women. The cufflink bars are silver plated.

PLEASE NOTE: Other dates may be available to order, for a variety of special occasions. Please feel free to contact me with your requirements.
