Queen Victoria British Penny Coin guitar pick / coin plectrum
A unique plectrum/ guitar pick made from an old Penny Coin, featuring Queen Victoria on one face and Britannia on the reverse. These are hand cut by me using a fine jewellers saw, the edges are smoothed and bevelled to be kind to your strings and finally the pick is polished to a high shine. Just three portraits of Queen Victoria were used on the penny in the whole of her reign: the Young Head used from 1838 to 1859, second ("bun") head 1860–1894, and finally the Old Head (or "veiled head") which was used from 1895 to 1901. The Penny coins used to make this plectrum feature the iconic veiled head image of Queen Victoria.
