Silver Wedding Coin

Dimensions: 30mm diameter, 2mm thick. Made of solid sterling silver.

Tradition:
The custom of the Groom presenting his bride with a coin is said to date back to the time when the Groom paid luck money to the family of the Bride, in order to bring happiness and blessings upon them.

After the wedding, the gift is often preserved as a family heirloom, and is passed from mother to eldest son on his wedding day.

Made by Boru jewellery, the design of this wedding coin features the bride and groom surrounded by an old Gaelic saying:
"Ta a lan notai I bport an bhanais", Translation: "There are a lot of notes in the wedding tune."
This teaches us that there is much to learn of each other if we are to sing in tune and live in harmony.

On the reverse side, there is  the ancient Ogham alphabet to spell... "Gra Go Deo", Translation: Love Forever. This has been placed above the Claddagh, the Irish symbol for Love, Loyalty and Friendship.
