Giving the gift of a coin is the perfect way to let someone know you are thinking of them and, like many of life’s significant milestones, the arrival of a new bundle of joy is often subject to a wide range of traditions and customs.
Celebrate the Little Treasure
Bringing new life into the world can be one of the most rewarding experiences imaginable and often represents the most treasured moments of a person’s life. With more than 1,100 years of experience and craftsmanship, you can cherish special moments like this with a long-lasting gift, such as a coin from The Royal Mint.
Coins from The Royal Mint have marked many significant historical and life events throughout the centuries. You can now embrace a cherished tradition through our baby collection, which offers the perfect gifts for both the arrival of a newborn and events such as naming ceremonies and christenings alike.
Whilst times have changed and traditions continue to evolve, the act of giving a coin as a christening gift is still a popular way of wishing new babies well for the future. A contemporary take on an age-old tradition, coins from The Royal Mint are the perfect way to commemorate a newborn baby, welcoming a new child into the world with something they can treasure for years to come.
Gifts Made to Last a Lifetime
EEstablished more than 1,100 years ago, The Royal Mint has a history like no other and we have been skilfully perfecting our craft for centuries.
When it comes to welcoming newborn babies into the world, one of the most endearing ceremonial quirks in the United Kingdom is crossing the baby’s palm with silver. In addition to gifting the newborn for the celebratory element, the gift of coin hosts a deeper meaning behind this age-old custom. Crossing the baby’s palm with silver was seen as a customary way to wish a new baby the best possible start to life, igniting a prosperity that hopefully continues throughout their life.
