Lucky ‘Silver’ Sixpences
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.
Our range of 'lucky' sixpence designs has something for every event you may be planning for, or for an occasion like a special birthday (we can sometimes match the year of birth), retirement, good luck, graduation, new baby, new grandparent, baby shower, First Communion, Christmas - in fact, any reason to acknowledge a special time or event in someone's life.

Pre-circulated 1947-1967 coins are made of cupro-nickel, so the term ‘silver sixpence’ is for association/descriptive purposes only. All our coins are machine-tumbled to a bright, shiny finish.
All of our 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!
