A sixpence is a coin that was minted in Britain from 1551 to 1967.
It was made of silver and worth six pennies.
So this wedding tradition is definitely English,
and many sources say that it began in the Victorian era.

or people around me did not bother about this!!
And there are not many weddings around me,
if people do get married it is often a small wedding!

weddings or know more about it, take a look at: Francesca
