What happened in 1980?
In 1980, the world saw some major historical events, including:
- The US boycott of the Moscow Olympics due to the Soviet Union’s invasion of Afghanistan.
- The birth of the first test-tube baby in the UK.
- The eruption of Mount St. Helens in Washington state, USA.
- The assassination of John Lennon in New York City
- Meanwhile, in the UK, the country was buzzing with excitement over the recently announced upcoming royal wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer. Their wedding, held on July 29, 1981, was watched by millions of people around the world and is still remembered as one of the most iconic weddings in history.
If you’re looking for a truly unique gift for someone born in 1980 or married in that year, consider our coin jewellery made from coins that were in circulation in the UK that year. Two of the coins in circulation in 1980 were:
The 5 pence coin: This coin featured an image of a thistle on the reverse, and a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse.
The 10 pence coin: This coin featured an image of the British lion on the reverse, and a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse.
At Heads and Tails Jewellery, we hand-make a variety of coin jewellery items from coins, including cufflinks, necklaces, keyrings, hip flasks, tie clips, money clips and coin rings. Each piece is unique and tells a story, making it the perfect gift for someone special.
Wearing our coin jewellery, the recipient will feel a sense of pride and connection to their birth or wedding year. Our jewellery is a conversation starter and a reminder of significant historical events and personal memories. It’s a great way to celebrate a milestone occasion or just show someone how much you care.
