This elegant coin gift is made using a real British threepence. It has been cleaned and drilled by hand and mounted onto a 9ct gold vermeil slip bail.
Attached to this, the coin necklace fastens at the front using a toggle and bar fastening, also 9ct vermeil. The chain is a 2mm rolo link chain, in a choice of finishes and lengths.
This beautiful design is simple and classic, allowing the detail of the coin to show. The threepence, or threepenny bit as it was also known, was a design showing the thrift plant (armeria), a small perennial plant found in the UK.
