Irish brides should have something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and a sixpence for her shoe. The Irish sixpence represents wealth, both financially along with the riches of a happy marriage.
An element of superstition is also connected with this Irish wedding tradition. The sixpence works as a lucky charm that will keep the bride safe on her wedding day.
This Irish sixpence is a previously circulated coin that was minted in Ireland between 1922 and 1969. The lucky coin is gift packaged with an Irish sixpence history card, complements of The Irish Gift House.
