Our sixpence coins are all sourced from our trusted suppliers. Sixpence coins were phased out in the late 1960's before imperial currency was replaced with the current metric currency. Every coin we use has been used in circulation and then restored methodically by hand. Please note that some of these coins do contain nickel which we can not remove from the alloy. Mounted in real gold, or sterling silver parts every necklace is hand made here in our Essex workshops.
