This is an actual 5 pence coin from the U.K. that has been meticulously hand-cut with a jeweler's saw, and then set as a pin. Designed as a tie tack or lapel pin, but can be worn anywhere the post will fit.
The post is soldered, not glued, to the back of the coin for strength and durability. The deluxe clutch features a low-profile release that helps ensure that ties lie flat, while holding the pin more securely than other styles.
It features a crowned thistle. The thistle is an emblem of Scotland and has been featured on Scottish heraldry for hundreds of years.
