- A pair of 'Lucky Sixpence' Cufflinks made in England using real vintage sixpence coins mounted in silver plated cufflink backs. Dated 1957, these come in attractive black velvet pouch and make the perfect 60th birthday gift for men turning sixty in 2017. These cufflinks are hand made to order so may take slightly longer to deliver. Should you wish to order an alternative date, please contact us. These cufflinks are available with coins dated 1953 - 1967. The sixpence (6d), sometimes known as a tanner or sixpenny bit, was a coin worth one-fortieth of a pound sterling, or six pence. It was first minted in the reign of Edward VI and circulated until 1980. Following decimalisation in 1971 it had a value of 2½ new pence. The coin was made from silver from its introduction in 1551 to 1947, and thereafter in cupronickel.
