Savvy Shopping For Father's Day - Gold Coin Cufflinks

After Admiral Cod's schooling of Tessa Scoffs on the correct wearing of cufflinks, and reading her response, I started to ponder on the perfect present for Father's Day. Why not some gold coin cufflinks?

because gold is good
and French History is interesting
why not combine the two with these

French Antique Gold Coin Cuff Links

These cufflinks feature antique Turn of the Century French 20 Centime gold coins from 1904 and 1905, respectively. The front is marked by the famed female profile of Marianne the symbol of France, crowned with laurels, and the words "Republique Francaise." and the reverse has the proud rooster of France and the famous "Liberte Egalite Fraternite."
Whether a cyclical return of a trend or a result of the recession, ancient coin and gold coin jewelry is in high demand. I will post more about this trend later.

Thanks for the link beautiful; but please understand my comments are strictly subjective; plenty of chaps wear cufflinks without ties and jackets/suits. I just find it irritating--and that's my problem, not theirs! :)

The cufflinks look fine. Many others too. But my husband hates to were cufflinks, as placing them is too much of a fuss for him. And I understand him. I too avoid jewelry/ clothes/ bags, which are difficult to use. Therefore, I am not interested even in the famous Birkin. It is carried open, as access to the inside of it is difficult, if closed. LOL.

J'adore a man's shirt with French cuffs and cufflinks.
