What happened in 1969?
Here are some interesting historical facts about 1969 to add some context to this milestone year:
- The Beatles’ last public performance took place on the roof of the Apple Records building in London in January 1969.
- The first-ever Concorde test flight took place on March 2, 1969, in Toulouse, France.
- Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first humans to walk on the moon on July 20, 1969.
Now let’s talk about the coins we use in our jewellery pieces. Two coins that were in circulation in the UK in 1969 were the 10 pence and the 50 pence coins.
The 10 pence coin features a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse and the image of a lion on the reverse. It was made of cupronickel, a silver-colored alloy made of copper and nickel. The 50 pence coin also features the Queen’s portrait on the obverse, but the reverse depicts the seated figure of Britannia, the British personification of the country. It was made of a larger and heavier version of the same cupronickel alloy.
Heads and Tails Jewellery takes historic coins such as these and turns them into unique and special pieces of jewellery. From cufflinks to necklaces, keyrings to hip flasks, tie clips to money clips, and even coin rings, we have a wide range of options to choose from.
