Irish Free State Coins : 1928-1968
 

Modern Irish Free State Coins were first issued by the Irish Government in 1928. Denominations included the farthing, halfpenny, penny, threepence, sixpence, shilling, florin and halfcrown. A total of 66 designs were received from the artists in accordance with guidelines specifying that one side carry a harp and the other animals or birds. In the end, it was the designs submitted by Percy Metcalfe that were selected.

The farthing and halfpenny were withdrawn from circulation in 1969, and two years later decimalization saw the withdrawal of the penny, threepence, sixpence, and halfcrown. The sculptor Gabriel Hayes, whose work can be seen in several places in Dublin, was commissioned to design the new decimal coins - ½p, 1p and 2p.
