Welcoming a newborn baby into the world is a time for celebration and joy. Whether it is the first born child or the latest addition to the family, parenthood is a rewarding experience filled with lots of loving memories.

To congratulate and capture the moment forever, The Perth Mint is proud to release a beautiful Newborn Baby coin in a stunning gift card. This 1/2oz silver proof coin is dated 2016 for all babies born in the coming year.

Coin details
In western folklore, parents have told their children for centuries that babies are delivered by a stork. As an Australian take on this legend, the coin’s reverse depicts a cute Australian kookaburra carrying a sleeping newborn baby in a swaddling cloth.

The coin is housed in an elaborate Australian themed gift card, with room to write the babies details, a family tree and a place to house a photograph.
