The halfpenny coin (1/2p) is a simple yet elegant coin. The coin features a rather modest design of a simple crown and has had the words ‘new penny’ inscribed since 1971. A coin that’d make a perfect choice for any individual with a more reserved style.
Our collection of Halfpenny Jewellery contains pieces of jewellery made from versions of this coin issued around the 1970’s to 1980’s with the depiction of Elizabeth II on the obverse and the British crown on the reserve. Each coin in this collection has been polished to a perfect rose gold shine to give a most elegant yet modest look.
A personalised and thoughtful gift for your husband, wife, mum, dad, son, daughter, brother, sister, in-law’s, niece or nephew or friend celebrating their birthday or anniversary. Browse the complete collection of keepsake gift ideas below.
Halfpenny Coin Design
If you are looking for truly unique and exquisite coin jewellery then it doesn’t get much sweeter than our Halfpenny Jewellery Collection. Unlike other vintage UK coins, the simple yet seductive halfpenny doesn’t feature the Royal Coat of Arms that adorns the pound coin. Nor will you find an intricate image of the ship of the pre-decimal halfpenny. But what it lacks in imagery it makes up for in subtlety. Due to its tiny size and copper-esque colouring, the halfpenny makes for wonderful little gifts bearing a simple crown design. Searching for gifts for Grandma? Or a special something for your Dad or Grandad? Then this little treasure is sure to live up to the task. Afterall, they do say that the best things come in small packages.
For coins minted between 1672 until 1936 (a pretty hefty gap, we know) a stunning image of Britannia appeared on the coin. If your coin piece was minted in 1937 and beyond, you will see the image of the Golden Hind is present but post 1971 the simple crown image. With such a rich history and a simple role to play in the public’s life, we feel even more excited to breathe life into these coins once again. Browse through our halfpenny collection today and see the intricate designs of our coin cufflinks, keyrings, coin rings and more!
