unity coins for the wedding

My future sis-in-law love the design of our 'arras' when we got married. We had the unity coins in place of the usual design of 'arras'. Now that it is their time, she requested if she could have a set also. We thought that it would be a good gift for them and that they could keep it for as long as they could. They could also pass it to their future children. Because of this, I inquired from Benz of weddingsatwork if she has a silver set available (the last time we dropped by MOA and inquired at Wedding Library, they had no stock available). She gave it to me at a discounted price (thanks ms. benz, with free shipping pa :p)

For those who wanted to give it as a gift or use it for their wedding, you can read more about the unity coins here.

Unity Coins

~ A great Wedding or Anniversary gift

~ Timeless wedding ceremony tradition

~ Beautiful commemoration of your love

The Unity Coins are a contemporary version of the traditional wedding coins, known as Arras in the Philippines & Spain, that are used throughout the world in numerous cultures (Arabic, Filipino, Greek, Indian, Irish, Latin American, Sicilian, Spanish, Swedish, & others) & religions (Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, Jewish, Muslim, & others). The Wedding Coins have come to symbolize more than just prosperity. Today's couples embrace life & face the world together in a more mutually supportive way than ever before.

Each coin in our "Unity Coins" set has a unique design, representing one of thirteen universal tenets of marriage:
~:~ Love ~:~ Trust ~:~ Commitment ~:~ Respect ~:~ Joy ~:~ Happiness ~:~ Harmony ~:~ Wisdom ~:~ Unity ~:~ Nurturing ~:~ Caring ~:~ Cooperation ~:~ Peace ~:~

The symbolic use of coins in a wedding ceremony is a tradition in many different religions, cultures & countries. The "Unity Coins" designs have influences from all over the world, including the "Celtic Marriage Knot" (which is on the backside of each coin), the Adinkra (Asante people of Ghana and Ivory Coast) symbol for Wisdom, & the Chinese "Yin & Yang," to name a few.

The designs are non-denominational & celebrate the universal tenets of an enduring marriage. Coin size: 30mm diameter (half-dollar size). Available in English & Spanish versions, with various finishes.

For inquiries, you can check weddingsatwork.com. They are the official distributor of the unity coins in the Philippines.
