Small 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 small bawbee coin, cast in solid silver from a 1696 original and resized, hangs from a short chain.

Our designer says: “The perfect little gift.”


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

Approx: 1.1cm diameter | Chain length: 40cm (16″)

Product code: BBN01
