Long lost love token
« on: August 02, 2018, 03:31:05 PM »
Connect M&M with their coin. You didn't know they had one? Well, now you know. The "coin" is a latter day love token, a "wedding coin". It comes under an old wedding tradition which involves the groom presenting his wife with a silver coin which is a symbol of their coming together and symbolizes the man's willingness to provide, protect and care for the women. Right. That was still OK in 1991, when M&M were married.

The coin was handed into a police station in Cork, but unfortunately Michael and Mary is about the most common combination of names in Ireland, so it may be a little hard to track down the owner.

Yet, the police (gardai) is trying. They posted the following tweet:

Forget Jack & Dani, Its all about Michael & Mary! This wedding coin was handed into Ballincollig Garda Station. Let's get it back to the owners!
Please RT #LoveIsland — Garda Info (@gardainfo)

I am shocked that an Irishman, whose country produces the best whiskey in the world, would refer to Jack & Dani, even if the advice is to forget it.  ;)

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.
