Lucky Irish hare

Lucky Irish hare

Out in the fields, everything is green

The green of Ireland of Old

The grass sparkles emerald,

Diamonds of dew dripping down stems

The hare stands proud on the hill

Dark eyes taking in the the rolling countryside

That breathes with palpitating life

Here, the old ways are not forgotten.

Here, the hare and the land are free

And wild

And alive



The Lucky Irish hare

Irish hare threepence coin – transformed with traditional hand tools and techniques.

The three-pence coin was a pre-decimal coin worth 1/80 of an Irish pound. The Irish name (leath reul) literally meant “half reul”, the reul being a sixpence coin worth the same as the Spanish real.

I completely hand-cut and hand-carve each one of these lovely Irish Hare three pence pieces with traditional flourish scrolls and recycled – I make them green in more ways than one! I finish them with three precious stones to symbolise the flag of Ireland; an emerald, a diamond and an orange sapphire.

The coins I use to make the Lucky Irish Hare are marred from wear marks from being used to buy and sell over one hundred years ago. Rather than let them simply be melted down for the silver content, I absolutely love coming up with designs and ideas. Then, I can transform them into a little hare. By doing this I retain the historical details, simultaneously adding depth, interest and intrigue to the design. As I hand-cut each coin individually to order, every one is completely unique and unusual. They look and feel special. If you liked this Irish hare, why not have a look at a flourishing hare?
