Did You Know? The penny has been a feature of Irish coinage for more than 1,000 years, from the time when the post-Roman Hibernia, as Ireland was known, was invaded by the Vikings and Saxons. The first pennies were hammered silver coins. The coins used in each Irish Penny Watch were minted by the Irish State and in circulation between 1928 and 1968 in Ireland, before Ireland adopted decimal coinage in 1971.
