Searching for the perfect little gift for someone special?

Surprise and delight them with a beautifully presented lucky Irish half crown (two shillings and sixpence): a great idea for anyone who enjoys riding, racing or just being around horses. This unique gift features a noble Irish Hunter stallion, and is a genuine circulated pre-decimal coin sourced from a single picturesque village in Co. Cork.

As your vintage half crown is more than fifty years old, it naturally bears the signs of age - but we believe every mark and small imperfection adds to its story; a story in which you may now play a role.

Your leath choróin sits in a charming retro-style card; a card that slips perfectly into a hand-made vintage-style envelope bearing a genuine Irish postage stamp from the 1930s.

Each Lucky Irish Half Crown is a beautiful memento of bygone days and is a perfect, thoughtful gift for any occasion.

Presentation card: 124 mm x 62 mm (open); 62 mm x 62 mm (folded).
Coin size: 32.4 mm in diameter.
Year: 1940s – 1960s
Envelope size: 70 mm x 70 mm (with either red 1d or green 2d Eire postage stamp, random selection).

All our cards and envelopes are individually hand-assembled, so dimensions may vary slightly.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Our last day for guaranteed Christmas deliveries with standard post is 12 December. Due to postal volumes and cut-off times, orders placed after this date are unlikely to make it into Santa's sack before the big day. Merry Christmas and all the best for the New Year!
