The arrival of a child into the world is in various cultures associated with a number of rituals, in which the coin plays a major role - the donation is an expression of wishes of happiness and prosperity. The Gold Ducat dedicated by the Czech Mint is also a keepsake of the childs first big day in this world and the joy that his arrival brought to the family.
"All that glitters is not gold”, says the well-known Czech saying. In the case of the Gold ducat in stunning quality coinage proof, however, the opposite is true. Your personal message that we will engrave on the ducat may include for example, babies name and date of birth, or even your life philosophy, that will later become an inspiration to the child.
The author of the ducats creative form, a talented artist Lenka Nebeská, DiS., opted for a magical theme on the front face - a motif of a newborn sleeping in a sling with an added inscription ‘Ducat Baby and Christening’ and the year ‘2016’. The reverse area is ready for your heartfelt dedication and its form was designed by an academic sculptor Michal Vitanovský. An attractive cover in which the ducat is stored, highlights the uniqueness of the gift of pure gold.
