A lucky sixpence makes a great gift on many occasions, especially for a wedding when for the bride or for a bridesmaid, they can recite the old verse:
And a sixpence in her shoe.
And to make the sixpence extra special we can personalise the silver sleeve it is held in with a name, short message and a date
You can also give a sixpence as a good luck charm on many other occasions, for example, to wish a friend 'good luck' before an exam, or when starting a new job.
We have a limited supply of authentic coins dated between 1921 and 1967 that we use to make this gift which comes on an 16-18" (40-45cm) extending solid silver chain with a bolt ring clasp as standard. You can opt to have a longer chain if you prefer by choosing the length you require in the drop down menu below. Both sides of the sixpence are preserved in the silver sleeve and we expose the reverse of the coin which shows the year and the abbreviation 'FID DEF' - 'Defender of the Faith'.
Pre 1947 sixpences are a little more expensive due to the silver content. All sixpences are used coinage and the older ones will show signs of wear, we think this adds to their beauty and we make sure the date and pattern is always legible.
You are able to choose the year that the sixpence was minted if you wish, select the year from the dropdown menu below. If the year doesn't matter simply select 'No Preference'.
