The Royal Mint will be gifting 100 lucky couples a silver sixpence and one winner a gold sixpence
To end the 2021 wedding season on a high, The Royal Mint will be gifting 100 lucky couples a silver sixpence and one winner a gold sixpence worth £475.
Those who have had their 2020 weddings cancelled or postponed by the pandemic will be able to enter the competition. The silver sixpence is traditionally gifted to a bride to wish her prosperity in marriage. This comes as researchers discovered that 38 per cent of Brits are unable to finish the rhyme – Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue and a silver sixpence in her shoe.
Entrants must fill out a short form on how their wedding was affected by the Coronavirus pandemic and explain why they’d love to win the coin.
