Earlier this year we released the antique finish shaped version of a horseshoe. This numismatic lucky charm was an instant success.
The use of a horseshoe as a symbol of good luck dates back to early times when horses played an integral part in the life of many people. They were originally made of iron, a material that was believed to ward off evil spirits.
Now it is time to add another family member – a rose gilded silver version.
Opinion is divided as to which way up the horseshoe ought to be nailed. Some say the ends should point up, so that the horseshoe catches the luck, and that the ends pointing down allow the good luck to leak out; others say they should point down, so that the luck is poured upon those entering the home.
But there is no doubt that this shaped 1 oz rose gilded silver lucky charm with country style ornaments and silk finish is the perfect gift. Only 999 will be struck.
