Lucky Sixpence for Any Occasion - The Lucky Sixpence was first minted in 1515 under King Edward the VI. As a token of good luck, it was placed in the Bride's left shoe to bring the newlyweds good luck and sewn in the jackets of the aircrew of the Royal Air Force.
The Queen Elizabeth sixpence has the Monarch on one side with the Thistle and Shamrock on the other. This authentic circulated sixpence will be a nice Celtic touch to any occasion or gift. Made of Cupronickel (copper, nickel and manganese). Story card and gift bag included.
