“The sixpence coin was first struck in 1551… [and] quickly established itself as a popular fixture of Britain’s coinage, acquiring the nickname ‘tanner’, and in more superstitious times became a symbol of good fortune. Tucked in the bride’s shoe come wedding day, served up in a slice of Christmas pudding or given as a christening gift – the notion of a lucky sixpence has become embedded in British tradition.”
My sixpences date from 1949, 1951 and 1965. None are silver so couldn’t safely be boiled in the pudding, but could be stuck in afterwards, before serving. The Royal Mint debased silver coinage in 1920 from 92.5% silver to 50% silver, then stopped using silver for regular coins in 1946. If you don’t mind paying considerably more than sixpence, you can buy special edition silver sixpences from the Royal Mail shop. They’re a bit pricey for me, but I do also own a Victorian 3d coin,.which should be okay.
