But what really sets our “Born in 1947” gifts apart is that we offer unique and personalised coin jewellery made from coins that were in circulation in the UK during this year. The two coins that we specialise in are:
The 1947 British Shilling: This coin features the portrait of King George VI and the design of a seated female figure representing Britannia on the reverse. It was made of cupronickel, a metal alloy of copper and nickel, and was the first shilling to be issued after World War II.
The 1947 British Sixpence: This coin also features the portrait of King George VI, but with the design of a lion standing on a crown on the reverse. It was made of cupronickel as well and was used as a circulation coin until 1967.
At Heads and Tails Jewellery, we use these authentic coins to create stunning and unique pieces of jewellery. Each piece is carefully crafted and can be personalised with initials or dates to make it even more special. Our jewellery makes a thoughtful and sentimental gift for anyone born in 1947.
