Coins have been given at christenings for centuries; during the Victorian era they became both symbolic and practical gifts, given to help the child to a secure start. For those wishing to continue this tradition to celebrate the safe arrival or christening of a newborn we have the 2014 My First Coins Baby Journal. Exclusively designed by The Royal Mint the collection features poems and illustrations introduced by a helpful companion. ‘Teddy’ will guide baby and family through a story that will continue to delight for years to come. Along the way meet more animal friends to help record important facts, milestones and memories in the journal to look back upon.
The pack also contains Baby’s future personal treasure: eight United Kingdom coins from the year of their birth, from the 1p right up to the £2, all struck to gleaming Brilliant Uncirculated condition. When all the denominations from the 1p to the 50p are placed together, their reverse designs by Matthew Dent form the Royal Shield. The £1 and £2 complete the set: the £1 featuring Matthew Dent’s full Royal Shield design, while the £2 coin by Bruce Rushin charts the history of technology.
