Lucky Charm Copper Penny Pendant Necklace PC99 United States Penny Necklace on Copper Chain
The Lucky Charm Copper Penny Pendant is made from a real United States Lincoln Memorial Penny that has been infused with potent wishes of good fortune. The Lucky Charm Copper Penny Pendant is a genuine piece of Americana. It measures approximately one inch (25mm) high with solid copper jump ring bail. Ironically our real penny charm is the only piece of Celtic Copper jeweler that is not pure copper. 100% pure copper pennies were last minted by the United States in 1857.
The year of the pennies used in creating Lucky Charm Copper Penny Pendants are chosen from a random mix of contemporary coins. New millennia coins are most common. You can use the text box if there is a particular year you would like. We'll accommodate your request if we have the coin, otherwise send you one at random. You can send us coins to make into pendants for the same price if you e-mail us.
Celtic Copper pendant necklaces come ready to wear either strung on a black satin cord with a knot tied in the back or mounted onto a solid copper ball-chain in the length of your choice.
Lincoln Memorial pennies dated before 1982 are made of 95% copper and 5% tin, technically bronze. 1982 was the last year for copper pennies. And the first year for copper clad zinc pennies. They made both types that year, and the only way to tell them apart is by weight -- the zinc pennies are lighter. If the date is 1983 or later, it is made of 97.5% zinc and plated with a thin copper coating.
