The 2014 Lucky Silver Penny is a truly delightful gift for anyone wishing to mark the arrival or christening of a new baby. Dated 2014, to mark the important year of the little one’s birth, this special coin is housed in charming blue packaging traditionally associated with boys. The silver penny, struck to our Brilliant Uncirculated standard, is a gleaming gift that will be looked back on with affection for years to come.
Coins have been given at christenings for centuries; during the Victorian era a silver coin became a symbolic and practical gift, given to help the child to a secure start. Silver coins are still believed to bring luck and blessings, the precious metal is an enduring symbol of purity – the custom of crossing of a baby’s palm with silver to bestow good luck is still practised widely.
For those wishing to continue this tradition to celebrate the safe arrival or christening of a new baby boy, we have the 2014 Lucky Silver Penny. Dated 2014, the baby’s special year, the coin features its own piece of the familiar Royal Shield design by Matthew Dent. Struck in sterling silver, it is a truly delightful gift for a son, grandson, nephew or any special little boy in your life and is sure to be treasured forever.
