About this deal

Sixpences were originally supposed to be demonetized upon decimalization in 1971. However, due to public outcry, they remained legal tender until 1980. To help keep the old traditions alive, the Royal Mint began minting the sixpence once again in 2016 to be sold as commemorative issues for gifts. There have been several versions produced for each year of minting, designed specifically for Christmas and wedding tokens. How Much is a Sixpence Worth Today? Outstanding quality coin keyrings made from genuine, highly polished Irish Sixpences minted in 1962. Whether the recipient of your gift was born or married in 1962 and you are shopping for a 61st birthday or anniversary gift, or it was a very special year for another reason, these keyrings make a very thoughtful and personalised gift. Percy Metcalfe, CVO, RDI, was an English artist sculptor and designer. He is recognised mostly for his coin designs and his contribution to the Ashtead Pottery Collection.

Cecil Walter Thomas, OBE, FRBS, was a British sculptor and medallist. As a sculptor, he created many private memorials for display in churches and cemeteries and as a medallist was regularly commissioned by the Royal Mint.
