From stockings, secret santas, place settings and hidey places, a Christmas sixpence is a quirky gift for all ages.
Celebrate the joy of Christmas, with the gift of a lucky sixpence for the person who has everything! These make a great stocking filler, addition to a Christmas card (they're flat) and make a wonderful keepsake your recipient can carry with them for many years to come.
Your sixpence is a time-worn treasure with its own stories to tell. It has been lovingly cleaned and polished entirely by hand to preserve its markings, but all have signs of unique patina. Featuring the George VI design, and made by the London Royal Mint.
Your coin will arrive mounted on a 'Merry Christmas' gift card with text that reads:
"This British sixpence is gifted to you with greetings of the season. Keep it with you or place it in a safe spot in your home where it can bring you good lucky and prosperity always."
The perfect idea for those hard to buy for people, or perhaps neighbours, colleagues, dinner party hosts / hostesses or even coin collectors! Everyone should have a lucky sixpence of their own.
You could even take this beauty along to your Christmas dinner party. Traditionally, sixpences were placed in the Christmas pudding to see who would get the slice with the coin in (we don't advocate doing this now though!). I still remember doing this with my family- my Grandfather had a very old sixpence he loved to use, though it changed to a 20p piece as time went on.
Sourced and handmade here in beautiful Stamford, UK by Rebecca.
