Large Bawbee Coin Necklace


This ancient Scottish halfpenny dates back to the 17th Century and is warmly recalled in the lyrics of a much loved nursery song:
“Ally bally, ally bally bee, sittin' on yer mammy’s knee,
greetin’ for a wee bawbee, tae buy some Coulter's candy”.

A heavy bawbee coin, cast in solid silver from a 1696 original, hangs from a longer chain.

Our designer says: “Wear with our bawbee coin studs.”


Solid sterling silver, with finishes available in 18ct yellow gold vermeil and 18ct rose gold vermeil.

Approx: 2.3cm diameter | Chain length: 55cm (22″)

Product code: BBN02
