Six Pence?

I'm sure you've all heard the wedding day saying:
"Something old, Something new, Something borrowed, Something blue"
But did you know that the last part of this saying is "and a sixpence in her shoe"?
According to Wikipedia, the sixpence dates back to the 1500's when King Edward was on the throne. However, it is no longer in circulation as English currency (and apparently it is not worth very would probably compare to our penny or nickel).
So my question is, where in the world do I find a sixpence? Did any of you brides include this in your wedding ensemble? Let me know.


  1. I have one! (Atleast I'm pretty sure it's a six pence)...Granny gave it to me for my wedding! You're welcome to it.

  2. I didn't carry one :) I just did something borrowed, blue, old, and new. You could do lucky pennies minted in the years y'all were born...I've heard some people do that.
