From our Irish coin series this coin is cast from an original Irish Hare coin from 1928 that Chupi found in her grandmother’s sewing box, 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.
Chupi has always loved the old Irish coins, with their illustrations of the birds, deer and salmon they are a tiny piece of Ireland. This coin necklace is illustrated with an Irish Hare, it was minted in 1928, the very first year that the new Irish coins were made in Ireland.
Individually handcrafted in our studio in Dublin, Ireland and hallmarked in Ireland's historic Dublin Castle.
Chupi hand carves the original piece, which is then cast in solid sterling silver using an ancient Egyptian method. Each piece is then plated in a thick layer of 18k gold and polished, ready for you to wear and love.
