This is an actual 3 pence coin 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.
Irish Mountain Hare is a close relative of the mountain hares of northern Europe and Asia, but are a distinct subspecies, being slightly smaller and lacking the white winter coat of their relatives. They are found in a wide variety of habitats across Ireland, but are most abundant in lowland pastures.
