Irish Sixpence

These lovely Irish sixpences show the Irish harp on the front and the Irish Wolfhound on the reverse with the word "Reul". Reul is the Irish for a Real - the Spanish Real denonimation was widely used in Europe and America between about 1500 and 1820. A 1 Real piece corresponded to the value of sixpence and as the Spanish coins circulated widely in Ireland the Irish language adopted the word 'real' for a sixpence. The first Irish sixpence was minted in 1928 and were made from nickel, changed in 1942 to cupro nickel. !!< Please note that these coins contain no silver. >!!
