Crystal Coin

The unique gift series "Crystal Coin" is the result of a combination of traditional Jablonec crafts - the Czech Mint and Preciosa glassworks. One of the most popular motifs appearing on silver coins with Czech crystal is the birth of a child. The original cradle gift will also be released in 2024.

The celebration of the arrival of a new life into the world takes different forms in different countries. Americans celebrate in advance - the party is held three weeks before the birth and is associated with a lot of useful gifts for a newborn baby. In Germany, on the other hand, they believe that giving gifts or having a party before the baby is born brings bad luck. Russians, like Americans, are keen on practical things, and congratulations are not infrequently given to the baby with a complete outfit. Mexicans bring cigars to families where a baby boy is born, and otherwise they give chocolate. Special sweet gifts are also popular in the Netherlands, Belgium and Iran. And what about the Czechs? They have begun to rediscover the magic of a penny made of precious metal inserted into a cradle. But most mothers, regardless of nationality, will agree that throwing a party is the last thing they have the energy for before giving birth and after returning from the hospital. On the other hand, daddy's drinking the offspring is not to be missed in almost any culture...

The reverse side of the commemorative coin, which is the work of medal maker Petra Brodská, DiS., presents a combination of embossed relief, Czech crystal and traditional symbolism. The children's room is dominated by a cradle with a teddy bear, which is covered by a crystal canopy. The composition is completed by the Czech-English inscription HELLO BABY – VÍTEJ NA SVĚTĚ. The obverse side is dedicated to a baby carriage. As the coins of the Czech Mint are issued with the licence of a foreign issuer, which is the island of Niue, the obverse side bears its necessary attributes - the national emblem, the nominal value of 2 DOLLARS (NZD) and the year of issue 2024.

The coin represents an original, yet traditional gift for the birth of a child.
