Usually it was a penny when a transaction had taken place. When you see a new moon, turn your Luck Penny over in your hand three times and you will have luck and prosperity.

This is a genuine Irish penny coin within a Connemara marble disc. Presented on a leather cord with an adjustable slide closure.

Description

Giving a Luck 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 the 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 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 Pendant 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.
