The Antique Irish Pennies, called Pingins, feature a mother hen protecting her clutch and the traditional Irish Harp. Although the modern pennies feature the hen and chicks, the antique ones also have a split date on the reverse, framing the floral Harp. From 1928 until 1972 these coins were in circulation. Yet this, original, large penny, was only made until 1968, and not every year. Some years production ceased due either to depression, or war. However, in 1971 Ireland switched to the decimal system and issued a new Penny design, forever changing the look of the lucky penny. We will ship your Irish Penny pendant on a 20″ silver chain like the one pictured above. The coin will feature a specific year, but the luck o’the Irish will decide what year ya get!
