This beautiful necklace features a 1916 sterling silver Australian threepence, pink opal heart and pink freshwater pearl on a gold fill ball chain.
The Australian Threepence was minted from 1910 until 1964 prior to the changeover to decimal currency in 1966. For the first 5 years the three pence was minted in London. For the rest of the life of the coin it was mostly minted in Australia at either Melbourne or Sydney. The only exceptions to this were during World War 2 when the 1942/43/44 coins were also minted in the USA. In 1951 part of the production was again minted in London. From 1910 to 1944 the coins were minted in sterling silver.
The coin measures 1.6cm and the chain measures 44cm.
Gold fill has the same desirable properties and look of solid gold. It won’t tarnish and will not rub off. If treated with care gold filled jewellery can be worn daily without fear of fading or rubbing off.
