Silver sixpenceWe all know the saying – something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. But did you know there is another something, a silver sixpence in your shoe?

A silver sixpence in the bride’s shoe is a gesture of good luck, the father of the bride usually places the sixpence in the bride’s shoe as a symbol of him wishing her love and happiness in her new marriage.

If you want to stick with tradition, then you can’t walk down the aisle without your silver sixpence, The Royal Mint has a limited number of authentic silver coins, struck by The Royal Mint between 1920 and 1946 when it was located at Tower Hill in London. It’s a great gift that a bride can keep and pass down to her children in years to come, it may bring them luck too.

You can pick up your very own silver sixpence for £30 at royalmint.com/shop/the_2012_wedding_silver_sixpence.
