Coining it

Sat, Dec 8, 2012, 00:00

First there were the cufflinks, now you can get necklaces made with old Irish coins – specifically a pendant with a penny coin from 1968.

The images on this particular coin were chose by WB Yeats, when he was chairman of the Irish Coin Committee in 1928, and the pennies were in circulation for 60 years. The limited edition pendants have been made by jewellery designer Maura Reynolds, from a cache of mint coins, and they’re available from worldcoincufflinks.com(€95).
