Worth Your Weight in Gold Farthing Coin Necklace
Gold farthing coin necklace by Chupi
Cast from an original Irish farthing coin from the 1940’s that Chupi found in her grandmother’s sewing box, this is a little reminder you are worth your weight in gold.
In the early 1920’s the first Irish coins were designed by a committee headed by the legendary poet W.B. Yeats. Renowned artist Percy Metcalfe was commissioned to design a series of beautiful coins inspired by Irish wildlife. When Chupi was little she loved coins, particularly the beautiful old Irish coins with their illustrations of the birds, deer and salmon.
This coin is illustrated with a Woodcock, one of the most common birds in the West of Ireland.
Individually hand crafted in our studio in Dublin and hallmarked in Ireland's historic Dublin Castle
