From as far back as the sixteenth century, the Book of Common Prayer decreed that the bride and groom should exchange tokens made of gold and silver. In Scotland, it was traditional for the groom to keep the token in his shoe. In Ireland, the groom gave the bride a coin after the exchange of rings. In India, a bride scatters coins outside her parents’ house before leaving for the ceremony. In South America, Christian couples receive thirteen coins as wedding gifts. If you know a happy couple who have a wedding or anniversary approaching, we have a range of special coins and coin sets that make the perfect gift.
