In the past, grandparents and godfathers used to give a coin to a crib of a new born baby so that he or she did not suffer from poverty. Czech Mint continues in this tradition in 2015 by striking silver baby and christening thalers.
“To love means to rejoice in somebody else’s happiness“
If you wish to express your sincere joy that a new baby has arrived in the world, then a silver medal is a perfect choice. It will be more than just a talisman for luck that will accompany him/her throughout entire life; it will be the first contribution to the baby’s future!
The gift to the birth of a baby features more than a permanent value of the precious metal, t it also has high artistic value. The main motif of the obverse side is a sleeping baby wrapped in a headscarf. As the legend has it the baby is carried to his parents by a stork, and the author of the design, Lenka Nebeská, placed it on the reverse side of the silver thaler.
The original and at the same time traditional gift speaks louder than a thousand words and will be appreciated by babies and mothers alike!
