The six pence was a silver coin minted in England from the 1500s until the 1960s, and was worth six pennies. By the end of the 17th Century it became a Celtic or Irish tradition and customary for a bride's parents to present a six pence as a dowry gift to her groom. According to tradition, if a bride carries a six pence along with four other lucky items with her on her wedding day, she and her groom will live happily ever after. These items symbolize prosperity of the past, optimism for future, borrowed good fortune from a happily married friend or family member, love, modesty and fidelity, and wealth. Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, AND a silver sixpence in her shoe!
