Silver Halfpenny Earrings

Description

Made by Hand & Hammer, these sterling silver post earrings are reproduced from an English half penny found at Jamestown.

The original silver half penny was minted between 1607-1609 and was the smallest precious metal coin ever recovered in an American archaeological site. It was also one of the first coins found during the Jamestown excavations.

Like their inspiration, these earrings measure approximately 3/8″ (~10mm) in diameter.
