Silver Sixpence in your Left Shoe, a wedding coin for good luck, longevity & prosperity.
The Sixpence is a wedding coin tradition from England becoming very popular in the United States. Traditionally, the silver Sixpence, a coin minted in England over 60 years ago, is placed in the Bride’s left shoe by the Father of the Bride or the Maid of Honor before she walks down the aisle, as a good luck wedding ceremony coin. Placing the coin in the bride’s left shoe brings the married couple good luck and great fortune, as well as longevity, contributing to a very happy marriage. The Sixpence is no longer minted, becoming very rare as time goes on. Not only is it a symbol of prosperity, it is also a collectible keepsake the bride can display on the included card after the wedding ceremony for years to come.
The traditional saying:
Something old, something new
Something borrowed, something blue
And a Sixpence in her left shoe
The last sentence, previously omitted in most of North America, is once again recognized by the modern bride.
Includes display card (3.5″ tall x 2″ wide) with authentic Sixpence coin attached (removable for use and easily re-attached for display). Comes in a shiny gift envelope (glittery, sparkling paper gift envelope).
