Antique Silver Sixpence Padlock

Antique Silver Sixpence Padlock


A little piece of history that can be worn and adored.

This working padlock would have been handmade by someone and sent as a love token. Have you heard of trench art? Soldiers used to make things when they weren’t on the front lines to pass the time, you’ll see coins that have initials or pictures etched into them, and then there’s this piece, the next level of “art”.

The padlock has been created from 2 six pence coins. The coins date between 1864 and 1884 and are solid silver.

It has been well loved, perhaps worn by the receiver and touched over and over again as they remembered their loved one. The six pence coins are rubbed with only giant detailing still seen. There were also initials scratched into the back that have also nearly fully rubbed away.

The amazing this about it is that it is fully usable as a padlock. It’s strong and locks securely with the metal key hanging from it! (The key can be removed from the padlock easily)

We love it hanging from a long guard chain or an Antique Albert. It also makes the perfect clasp!

The coins are solid silver and the mechanics of the padlock/key are metal.

Weight: the padlock weighs 3.98g and the key/chain weigh 1.28g
