Fully Hallmarked in the Assay Office at Dublin CastleThis wedding coin is based on the old Irish saying “Tal a lan notai in bport an bhanais”, there are a of notes in the wedding tune! Meaning there is a lot to learn of each other if we are to sing in tune and live in harmony.
The wedding coin custom dates back to when the groom paid luck money to the family of the bride. Today it is a romantic gesture to signify wealth and financial security.
The groom hands his bride a newly minted silver piece and says, “I give you this as a token of all I possess.”
The token becomes a family heirloom and is handed down from mother to son. The back of this wedding piece is inscribed with the words “Gra Go Deo” (love forever) in both Gaelic and Ogham script.
