English Sixpense Wedding Keepsake

 

 


 

 

 


The sixpence is an English coin that was minted from 1551 until 1967 and as such, are becoming rare. According to tradition, during the early 1600's the Lord of the Manor presented a sixpence to the bride as a wedding gift. Toward the end of the 17th century, it became the custom for the bride's parents to give the sixpence as a dowry gift to the groom. As time went on, the custom of using the sixpence as a good luck coin continued into the 1800's. Today, brides throughout the British Isles, the U.S. and other countries world wide still place a sixpence in their left shoe for good luck.
