Recycled little halfpenny coin “These are definitely tiny, sweet little charms / necklaces. I have cut them from small UK half pennies (no longer in circulation, 1984 was the last year of the half-pea). It is only a tiny 17 mm diameter coin. Your main decisions are to choose a right Royal little king or a sweet Royal birdie queen (complete with tiny engraved eyelashes!) Next you can choose hearts or stars for the theme, or indeed neither, just the little bird and crown!” – The Growler

Recycled little halfpenny coin
These are definitely tiny, sweet little charms / necklaces. I have cut them from small UK half pennies (no longer in circulation, 1984 was the last year of the half-pea). It is only a tiny 17 mm diameter coin, now i have started working with them i realise i quite miss them being in circulation! I used to buy sickly little ½ penny chewy sweets as a little boy.

It is a beautiful little coin to work with and i love the fact that the ½ penny denomination is visible within the design. You are able to choose the design as you see it or possibly request an available year 1971 – 1984. This date is visible on the reverse of the pendant and could add that extra special birthday touch. It is worth noting that some of these years will carry a surcharge as they are very scare / rare. However, your main decisions are to choose a right Royal little king or a sweet Royal birdie queen (complete with tiny engraved eyelashes!) Next you can choose hearts or stars for the theme, or indeed neither, just the little bird and crown!

    I was incredibly lucky to receive this necklace for Valentines, from my husband. It was a total and most welcome surprise, I absolutely love it. Delicate and beautiful, it is admired almost every time I wear it and it has become one for my favourite necklaces.

On the half pence was the year I was born 1974, it is so beautiful I can’t believe how much work has gone into such a beautiful picture on such a small coin!
