Coins are a traditional Christmas keepsake, with gold and silver gifts exchanged throughout festive stories. The three kings gave gold, frankincense and myrrh, while St Nicholas placed a bag of coins in a stocking. And let’s not forget the tradition of stirring a silver sixpence into the Christmas pudding mix, said to bring the finder wealth and good luck in the year to come.
