Wearing coin cufflinks is a nod to the history that lies behind them. They have been around since the 1600s but gained much of their popularity in the mid-1900s. The development of cufflinks coincides with the development of more formal style during that time. Shirts used to be held together with buttons and ribbons near the necks and wrists. Cufflinks were made popular in Europe and were made out of numerous materials. The designer Coco Chanel made fashion jewelry more acceptable overall. Following the shortage after World War II, tie bars and many other accessories came into fashion, which are sometimes included with the purchase of some styles of cufflinks. In the 1970s, cufflinks became less popular with the Woodstock generation, resulting in many of them being transformed into earrings. With the arrival of the 1980s, cufflinks became popular again with the return of formal dress.
Throughout the decades and even centuries, cufflinks have always held a place in fashion. It may not have been the most traditional place, but they have always been something special to be revered and sought after. There are many different varieties and many different countries to choose from but perhaps the standouts for international coin cufflinks are the English variety.
