A unique Irish-inspired 24-carat gold-plated and silver-plated ring with genuine Irish penny obverse and green enamelling, exclusive to The Bradford Exchange – In 1926, when it was time to mint money for the newly-founded Irish Free State, the choice of symbol for the obverse of the coinage took little deliberation: the harp, the national symbol of free Ireland since the 1530s. A national design contest was announced and the winner was Percy Metcalf, who used the 16 string Irish ‘Brian Boru’ harp in Trinity College Dublin as his model. Flanked by Eire (Ireland in Irish) and the date of mintage, the harp stands handsomely front and centre, a proud symbol of a proud land. The reverses were dedicated to animals important to Ireland’s economy, then largely rural. With Ireland’s entry into the decimal system in 1971, the harp lived on as the symbol of the nation on the decimalised coinage, but the reverses were updated to Celtic knotwork animals, reflecting Ireland’s ancient heritage. Upon entry into the Eurozone in 2000, these unique and historic coins were minted no more. They remain only as artifacts of the history of free Ireland and grow increasingly rare.

Exclusive to The Bradford Exchange, the Irish Coin Ring is an attractive value with its rare and genuine Irish penny obverse enhanced with 24-carat gold-plating and silver-plating. The Celtic knot design on the band, the black and green enamelling and the engraved words from the traditional Irish blessing inside the band make it a wonderful celebration of all things Irish. We expect considerable interest from coin collectors, people of Irish heritage and those interested in historic collectables.
