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 lots of 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. This 1/2oz silver proof coin is dated 2015 for all babies born in the coming year and is sure to appeal to gift buyers and coin collectors alike.
The coin is struck by The Perth Mint 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. As an Australian take on this legend, the coin’s reverse depicts a cute Australian kookaburra carrying a sleeping newborn baby in a swaddling cloth. A representation of Australian vegetation, the inscription CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR BABY and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark are also incorporated into the design.
The coin is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, and features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the monetary denomination, and the 2015 year-date on its obverse.
The coin is housed in an elaborate Australian themed gift card, with room to write the babies details, a family tree and a place to house a photograph.
This coin is issued by The Perth Mint on a mint-to-order basis, with the coins official mintage declared 12 months after its release.
