The 50th Strawberry Moon – Tree of Life
50th Strawberry Moon Tree of Life coin necklace – handmade and recycled little halfpenny coin
These are definitely tiny, sweet little charms / necklaces. Each piece is carefully and considerately handcrafted from a very small UK half penny. This coin is no longer in circulation; 1984 was its last year of minting as it was impossible to buy anything with a ha’penny any more. It is only a tiny 17 mm diameter coin, and I have realised how much I miss these being in circulation! I used to buy sickly little ½ penny chewy sweets as a little boy, and working with these bring me back… It really is a beautiful little coin to work with, although quite challenging because of its size.
If you are looking for a 50th Birthday gift then this 1973 half penny is perfect choice. Minted the same year as the intended recipient! I have a small selection of special 1973 coins that I have managed to secure ready to transform into Strawberry Moon Tree of Life birthday necklace pendants. This date is visible on the front bottom of the tree trunk, and will add an extra special birthday touch. I will make into your own Strawberry Moon Tree of Life coin necklace.
