The old wedding poem reflects this, Something borrowed, something new…and a silver sixpence in the shoe.
The something borrowed reflects the continuation of the brides family in the wedding, something new reflecting the formation of the new union and the life ahead and the reference of the sixpence coin in the poem not only reflects wealth, but also health and happiness in the wedding.
The was sixpence minted in the UK from 1551 until 1968. The coins have been upcycled and inset into cufflinks so the they are available to wear from the groom, best man, fathers of the bride and groom.
