Lucky Sixpence

Home » GIFTS » Novelty and Small Gifts » Lucky Sixpence

Historically, the sixpence coin has been seen as a token of luck and good fortune for the recipient. Brides traditionally put a sixpence in their shoe on their Wedding Day, children would find the silver coin inside Christmas pudding etc.

The tradition of gifting a ‘lucky’ sixpence has had a bit of a revival, and the now popular notion of giving someone a personalised lucky coin has generated increasing interest in this simple, but meaningful tradition. Slim and light, it can be kept in a wallet or purse or in your home display.
Pre-circulated 1947-1967 coins are made of cupro-nickel, so the term ‘silver sixpence’ is for association/descriptive purposes only. All the coins are machine-tumbled to a bright, shiny finish.

All of the genuine sixpence coins are contained inside a 2 x 2 inch coin card and attached to a branded backing card with co-ordinating ribbon. On the reverse is printed a brief ‘History of a Sixpence’ text

They are packaged in clear, eco-friendly, biodegradable sleeves ~ all ready to gift!
