We have a lovely vintage wedding idea that we thought you might like to hear about. We’re all familiar with ‘something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue’, but the original rhyme also continued ‘…and a silver sixpence in your shoe’.
As it’s a tradition that no bride should be without, The Royal Mint has bought out beautiful sets with authentic silver sixpences struck between 1920 and 1946. They make a thoughtful present which any bride can keep forever, and have always been associated with wishing luck and prosperity for the marriage.
A wedding is an occasion that deserves an everlasting gift to mark the joy and happiness experienced by all on the special day, and offering silver to the bride as a token of luck is a long-standing tradition that no wedding should be without.
“Something old, something new, Something borrowed, something blue, And a silver sixpence in your shoe”
Royal Mint have selected the finest of those that have survived to the present day, and each one has been fully authenticated. Beautifully presented in a bridal-white gift box, it comes with a booklet which can be personalised with your own greetings.
The wedding silver sixpence is available to buy from Royal Mint for just £30:
