New website www.birthdaycufflinks.ie launches at the National Ploughing Championships
Introducing Birthdaycufflinks.ie – a new website offering Irish coin cufflinks from 84 different years!
Athy, Kildare: Irish website www.birthdaycufflinks.ie, offering a wide range of cufflinks made from Irish coins spanning 84 years, has been launched to the Irish market at this year’s National Ploughing Championships 2011, at their stand in the Boyne Retail Arcade, Row E, Block 1. Regardless of the occasion, if you would like to mark an important year in some special person’s lifebirthdaycufflinks.ie has the perfect gift for you! They even have a limited number of sets of shilling coin cufflinks, featuring the bull, from the first year of the Ploughing Championships, 1931, 80 years ago!
The cufflinks feature authentic Irish coins which have been cleaned, polished, shined and mounted by hand in Dublin. The coin cufflinks with coins dating back to the first Irish Free State coinage in 1928 are presented in professional cufflink boxes. At the time the newly founded Free State formed a coinage committee, headed by WB Yeats, which chose the animal designs featuring the bull, hare, wolfhound and salmon because they wanted to reflect Ireland’s mainly agricultural economy at the time. With such a strong connection to Irish agricultural life it is anticipated that the coin cufflinks will prove popular among those attending this year’s Championships. In addition the coins dating back to those early years of the Free State are made of 0.7 silver, a rarity in itself.
Speaking at the start of the Championships, Maura Reynolds, founder of birthdaycufflinks.ie said ‘Irish people and those with Irish connections tend to love the coin cufflinks as they provide such strong links to our culture and heritage, President Bill Clinton and the actors Liam Nielson and Gabrielle Byrne have all been presented with our coin cufflinks from the year they were born. Our first site worldcoincufflinks.com offered coins from different countries but the demand for particular years was so strong that we’ve just launched birthdaycufflinks.ie where you can go and choose cufflinks from particular years.’
The year side of the coins depicts the Irish harp a long associated symbol of Irish history, for the first nine years of the Irish Free State the harp side also featured ‘Saor Stat’ until it became a Republic in 1937 and the term was removed from the coinage.
