Lucky Sixpence bridal gift, complete with scroll of the verse in the photo and gift box.

Silver Sixpence In England, we have used the silver sixpence for many things, least of which, witchcraft! It is often used as a Faery offering and for scrying. Of course, the lucky sixpence has loads of other uses, not necessarily witchy. We always had a sixpence in our Christmas pudding for wealth in the coming months. I was told that if a witch gives you a sixpence you will always be looked after and protected.

As a young girl, I remember when my auntie married, the women would chant: "Something old, something new, Something borrowed something blue. And a sixpence for your shoe." Then, the bride would tuck the lucky silver sixpence into her shoe and she was ready for her wedding as she knew her lucky sixpence would bring financial luck to her married life. It is the coin with which to pay the Fae or to give to them as an offering.

It is also the coin that was used for many years to place on the eyelids of the deceased for them to pay Charon the ferryman for passage across the river Styx to the gates of the Underworld. Silver sixpences are also used for scrying. The black cauldron is filled with water and the sixpence dropped in to it to reflect the Moonlight. Another use for the sixpence is to find out who might be ill-wishing you. Take running water over which both the living and dead travel and put it into a dish with the sixpence. The person that is ill-wishing you will appear in the dish. Use drops of this water, once the identity has been established, to sprinkle on the ill-wished person, animal, crop or home and it will break the spell and return it to the sender.

The sixpence you receive will most likely date between 1947 and 1967 and has been circulated, therefore, they are not being sold in mint condition. Silver sixpence was made between 1551 and 1947. After 1947 through to their demise after decimalisation (aka Decimal Day) on 15 February 1971, they have been made of nickel. Still, to this day we call them a silver sixpence, If you have a silver polishing cloth, you can keep your sixpence shiny and new looking!
