Collecting Guinness St Patrick’s Day countdown clocks

These items are quite rare. They are still in use by Irish pubs who re-set them and continue to use them each year. People who collect Guinness memorabilia may consider them essential to a collection, yet they are rarely available.

If one was to be sold, it would generally be through an auction website such as eBay, or if lucky, at a flea market, car boot sale or second hand store.

Value

A Guinness St Patrick’s Day countdown clock sold on eBay for $50 in 2012. However, this is not to say they are not worth more as people become aware of their rarity and collectibility.
