Wedding Gifts – The Wedding Gold and Silver Set

The Wedding Gold and Silver Set

The Royal Mint will issue only a 100 of these special gold and silver sets, which makes it extremely limited and the perfect wedding gift for couples, young or old. Don’t be fooled by the bullion standard coins that are included in this set, both coins look absolutely stunning. In addition, each set comes with a card that can be personalized with the message of one’s liking when received.

The Wedding Gold and Silver Set is an extension of an age old custom that originates out of the Book of Common Prayer of 1549, which notes the giving of gold and silver as an integral part of the wedding ceremony, which is among the holiest of ceremonies. In addition, the role coins play in wedding day traditions to bring luck, love and prosperity to couples, throughout the ages, can also not be excluded. This and the above makes The Wedding Gold and Silver Set a must have wedding gift that should dominate wedding gift ideas across the board, especially considering the gold and silver content.
