Product description

A newborn baby is always the centre of attention and its loved ones are competing who can give the best gift. The Czech Mint has prepared a gold ducat to the birth of a child in the Slovak variant for anyone looking for an original, yet traditional gift.

Our ancestors used to give the penny for happiness to newborns. The baby in the families of rich noblemen and poor peasants was usually given a talisman in the form of a coin made of precious metal by the godfather or godmother. They used to place the coin in the cradle, giving rise to the phrases "in the wrapper" and "in the swaddle", which are still used in connection with baby gifts to this day. The precious gift was intended to ensure that the baby would lack anything in life and this gift would become the first investment in its future. The parents of the newborn then cherished it for the baby until adulthood…

The design of the ducat for the year 2021 is the work of medal maker Petr Patka, DiS. The obverse side is dedicated to a pair of cute babies that is supplemented with a heart and the Slovak inscription DUKÁT K NARODENIU DIEŤAŤA (DUCAT TO THE BIRTH OF A CHILD). On the reverse side you will find beads inscribed with the zodiac signs. This relief defines the space for engraving the text that can take the form of a personal message, name, date of birth, ... - there are no limits to imagination. The only limit is the size of the text: 3 lines of 10 characters including spaces.

You can also write a heartfelt dedication on the certificate of authenticity which is stored in the gift box together with the ducat.
