Welcoming a newborn baby into the world is a time for celebration and joy. Whether it is the first born child or the latest addition to the family, parenthood is a rewarding experience filled with many loving memories.
To congratulate and capture the moment forever, The Perth Mint is proud to release a stunning Newborn Baby coin in a stunning gift card. The coin is dated 2014 for all babies born this year and is sure to appeal to gift buyers and coin collectors alike.
Each coin is struck from 1/2oz of 99.9% pure silver in proof quality.
In western folklore, parents have told their children for centuries that babies are delivered by a stork. Flying high above the rooftops the stork is depicted on the coin’s reverse carrying a sleeping newborn baby in a swaddling cloth. The inscription BORN FOR HAPPINESS and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark are also incorporated into the coin’s reverse design.
Issued as Tuvalu legal tender, the coin’s obverse features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2014-year date, and the monetary denomination.
The coin is issued on a mint-to-order basis.
The coin is housed in an elaborate gift card, with room to write the baby’s details, fill in a family tree and a place to house a photograph.
