I Do Silver

Silver Sixpences 

Traditions to Treasure

A centuries old tradition of having a silver sixpence in a shoe for good luck, wealth and happiness on the bride's wedding day. 

Sixpences can also be a wonderful good luck gift for any occasion, such as crossing a new born baby's palm with silver, graduation gift, birthday or anniversary gift, and my favourite, as a love token.

At I Do Silver, we only sell silver Sixpences prior to 1947. Sixpences after that date have no silver content and are made from cupronickel, and we want you to have a silver sixpence that is actually made with silver!

Beautifully wrapped for that special moment

All our sixpences come beautifully gifted wrapped with either the white (as below) or the standard packaging.

Genuine Silver Sixpences

Our silver sixpences begin with Queen Victoria and continue up to 1946. Below you can chose which Queen or King you would like and the date available. We also have a small number of Australian sixpences.  Starting from as little as £24.99 to suit any budget.

We gave our gift of a 1921 silver Sixpence to the bride the evening before her wedding and she cried, it was a heartfelt moment.

I only recently learnt about the sixpence tradition and was really excited to receive mine.  Im going to keep it in our wedding memory box with all our little bits from our special day.
