If you or someone you know is getting married soon, why not get an antique sterling silver British sixpence? This one is dated 1865, with the young portrait of Queen Victoria.

This nicely aged piece would nicely fit both the role of the sixpence and the role of "something old" in the classic rhyme:

"Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and a sixpence for her shoe."

Sixpence coins are slightly larger than a U.S. dime.

Note on British sixpence:
Only those made up until 1919 are made of sterling silver.
Those made between 1920 and 1946 are made of .500 (50%) silver, while those made between 1947 and 1967 are made of a copper-nickel alloy. Copper-nickel, of course, may result in allergic reactions to those with nickel allergies.

Because they're the cheapest, most online sellers usually sell the copper-nickel ones from 1947 and later, sometimes not knowing that they're not actually silver.
