Sixpence coin for good luck, longevity & prosperity.
And a Sixpence in her left shoe is a wedding coin tradition becoming very popular in the United States. Traditionally, the Sixpence, a coin from England, has been placed in the Bride’s left shoe before walking down the aisle, as a good luck wedding ceremony coin. It is said, and many married couples say it has worked for them, that by placing the coin in the bride’s left shoe brings the married couple good luck and great wealth, as well as 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 with authentic Sixpence coin attached (removable for use and easily re-attached for display).
