Gold ducat Baby and Christening 2015 proof
“Where children are, there is the golden age“.
In the past, grandparents and godfathers used to give a gold ducat to a newly born baby‘s crib even in poor families. In 2015, Czech Mint continues in this tradition with an issue of goldmedals in the same shape and weight as Saint Wenceslas ducats. With the gold ducat you will also give a baby a talisman that will accompany him/her throughout entire life and bring luck. And, what’s more, it will be the first investment in the baby’s future!
The gift to the birth of a baby features more than a permanent value of the precious metal; it also has high artistic value. The main motif of the obverse side is a sleeping baby wrapped in a headscarf. According to a legend the baby is carried to his parents by a stork whom the author of the design, Lenka Nebeská, placed on the reverse side.
Babies and their mothers will certainly appreciate this traditional and at the same time original gift!
