"Take care of the pence, for the pounds will take care of themselves" - William Lowndes

We're all...especially at the moment...familiar with the concept of saving our pennies...but wouldn't it be much more fun to save your pennies in a penny? Especially when the penny in question is hand made...the leather embossed using bespoke metal plates that were designed with permission from the Royal Mint...and based on three British coins that are no longer actually in circulation (namely the Half Penny, Half Crown, and the pre-decimal One Penny). Coins that, though not the stuff of fairy tales, fall firmly into the realm of old movies, nursery rhymes, and rather lengthy stories from aged relatives that start with the words "Back in the day, when I was a boy/girl..."


Christmas is coming, the geese are getting fat
Please to put a penny in the old man's hat;
If you haven't got a penny, a ha'penny will do,
If you haven't got a ha'penny then God bless you!

- old English rhyme
