A Sickle or Silver-Sickle (SickleSymbol.gif)[1] is a coin of the wizarding currency used in Great Britain. Made out of silver, one Sickle is equal to 29 Knuts, and 17 Sickles make up a Galleon.[2]

Around the edge of each Sickle is a series of numerals representing a serial number referring to the goblin that cast the coin.[3]
