The cockerel coin necklace is handmade from a repurposed French coin depicting a cockerel with the words ‘Liberte’ and ‘Egalite.’
The cockerel coin necklace is handmade from a repurposed French coin depicting a cockerel with the words ‘Liberte’ and ‘Egalite’ meaning Freedom and Equality. These words are part of a national motto of France but here they are perfectly fitting for the purpose of my animal coin collection, which is to represent animal love, respect and freedom for all animals. Cockerels are commonly used in farms alongside hens, where their existence and experience is far from one of freedom and equality, and instead a life of imprisonment and abuse.
The cockerel coin is a positive symbol for animal freedom and equality, and by wearing this coin not only do you spread this message, but you also directly support Animal Equality UK, a charity working to end cruelty to farmed animals.
As a lover of animals and nature, history and discarded objects, I have created a series of coin jewellery using old coins. Many coins have beautifully depicted animals and nature carved onto them that are just too beautiful to not be worn. I have given the coins new life, banishing any letters, numbers and negativity from the object it previously was, to create a new emblem for each coin; Animal love, respect and freedom.
I have collaborated with Animal Equality UK, picking out four beautiful farm animal coins, with 10% of profits being donated to them. Amongst the four coins is the cockerel coin, pig, turkey and cow.

Animal Equality’s vision is a world in which all animals are respected and protected. They are an international organisation working with society, governments and companies to end cruelty to farmed animals. To learn more about the compassionate work they do, check out their website here.
