Dirty Cash (framed penny)
How dirty is your cash? Good old copper has antimicrobial properties - which means it can kill microorganisms such as bacteria and, yes, even viruses.
Enamel paint and 23ct gold leaf on an 1892 Queen Victoria penny. 1892 saw the third wave of the Russian Flu pandemic in the UK, which claimed Queen Victoria's Grandson, Prince Albert Victor, among its victims.
Penny comes framed in a cast resin frame (cast by us from a vintage find). Frame size is approx 11cm x 11cm (roughly 2.5cms deep). Signed QbA on the back, dated 2020.
