The tradition of the silver sixpence. For many years, giving a sixpence of solid silver was a generous gesture of love. These coins have so many traditions attached to them. A bride is said to have a happy marriage if she places a sixpence in her left shoe on the wedding day; a baby is said to always be wealthy if they are gifted a sixpence for the baptism or christening. A man or woman with a sixpence in his pocket is said to always have luck on their side. Sixpences were placed in Christmas puddings, gifted to children at Christmas and even given to the church as a gesture of charity at Easter. These dear coins have come and gone from circulation over the years, but their legacy remains.
Giftboxed and ready for giving.
