Baby gifts are something that everybody enjoys buying upon hearing the wonderful news that a baby has been born. If you are looking for a unique and timeless present, then a brand new silver penny is the perfect gift for a baby. Dated 2013, the lucky silver penny marks the year of the new baby’s birth and is a gift to cherish forever. Because of the traditional silver of the coin, it is also ideal as a christening gift.
This special version of the coin comes in a beautiful pink pouch, with a matching pink gift card that can be made even more special with a personalised message. This charmingly presented gift set is an adorable baby gift for a new little girl, and one that she will treasure throughout her life.
The silver penny, which has long been a symbol of good luck and prosperity, has been struck to Brilliant Uncirculated standard. It is a gift that the baby, as well as her parents, will delight in for years to come. It makes the perfect present by itself, or can be bought alongside other baby and christening giftsavailable from The Royal Mint today
The 1p coin forms part of the shield of the Royal Arms, a design spread across the range of UK coinage from the 1p to the 50p and which is shown in its entirety on the definitive £1 coin. Designer Matthew Dent chose the Royal Arms, and in particular a shield of the Royal Arms, as the theme for his innovative range of new designs because as he points out ‘heraldry has been the basis of coinage design in Britain for hundreds of years’. The Royal Arms are divided into four parts, England being represented by the three lions passant guardant in the first and fourth quarters, Scotland by the Scottish lion rampant in the second with the harp of Ireland in the third.
