The perfect gift for the bride and groom to be to bring the luck of the Irish on their wedding day

Authentic sixpence and penny coins from Ireland

The sixpence is perfect to complete the traditional Irish saying...

Something old, something new
something borrowed, something blue 
and a sixpence for her shoe...

And for that extra bit of good luck the groom can put the lucky penny in his pocket on the day

Comes in a plush black velvet pouch ( I also have pink pouches, see the photo above, if you would like one of these instead of the black please let me know when ordering)

The coins I will send will be from the years between 1928 and 1968, if you would like any particular years please let me know when order and I will do my best to include the year you want
