Hello, I thought I would share with you all an Irish Tradition that has stood the test of time. Giving a Lucky Penny is a very old Irish tradition originally associated with the buying and selling of farm animals. After the buyer and seller agree terms, the seller would then gift the buyer a sum of money for “good luck”. In old Ireland this would typically have been a penny.
This was an important ritual because failure to give back a Lucky Penny could bring ill fortune to them both, and us Irish, being a highly superstitious people would always avoid tempting Fate!
The Lucky Penny tradition has long since been expanded so that giving a gift of a Lucky Penny to a friend or family member brings ‘the luck of the Irish’ to both. It is always cherished as a lucky charm and is a constant reminder of the strong bond of friendship. The tradition of the Lucky Penny is still observed in Ireland today. If you move to a new home, get married, have a new baby or even buy a new car you will be gifted some “Luck Money” to bring you luck on your new venture.
The value is irrelevant, it is simply a gesture of best wishes.
The Lucky Penny provides you with the opportunity not only to acquire an important part of Irish history but are also a way for you to spread the famous ‘Luck of the Irish’ amongst your very special friends.

With best wishes from Ireland, Stephen
