Christmas Eve is such a magical time. Hanging up their stockings before bedtime, leaving a carrot out for Rudolf and not forgetting that all important snack for Santa. Imagine their excitement when Santa leaves a personalised penny to say thank you for the milk and cookies. Our hand stamped thank you coins are something for your child to treasure for years to come.

The obverse of the penny features the original coin design with the monarchs head, the design slightly differs dependent on the year of the coin. This is stamped with the words LOVE SANTA/ FATHER Christmas and a little Christmas tree design.

The reverse of the coin features a seated Britannia, holding a trident, with the words 'one penny' to either side. This is where the words THANK YOU and your child's first name will be. Please supply your child's name the 'add your personalisation box' or on a note at checkout up to 10 Characters including spaces. All wording is stamped in UPPERCASE lollipop font as you can see in the examples shown. Please note coins with your own words on are a custom item and cannot be returned or exchanged please see our FAQ and terms and conditions for more information.

Please note that this is a real Bronze pre decimal penny (1d) measuring 31mm in diameter (approx. 1.2 inches). The coin that you will be sent will date between 1860 and 1969, the year will be randomly chosen. Should you require a specific year please ask before ordering, there may be additional charge for some years depending on the base value of the coin.

Our stamped pennies are not a toy. They should only be given to children over three and under strict supervision as they may be a choking risk.

Before you purchase one of our beautiful hand stamped coins you may want to know a little more about it.

Each coin we stamp is a genuine demonitised coin which has been sourced and purchased by Dormouse and The Teapot from within the UK. We operate under license by HM Treasury.

We stamp each letter of your chosen phrase individually by hand using traditional tools and methods in our little workshop situated on the edge of the Yorkshire Moors. It is then carefully cleaned and polished, before being wrapped up in our pretty tissue paper, tape and stickers.

Each piece is unique so the picture you see above is only a representative example of this piece, we cannot guarantee a year of minting for this piece. Due to the nature of stamping there may be variations in alignment and spacing of letters. As every item is genuinely old, there may be some light scratches and signs of wear, all part of the charm. Wash only by hand, and handle with love and care.

Each item is made to order so please allow the full time stated in shipping for dispatch. Thank you.
