The arrival of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge firstborn is one of the most anticipated events for 2013—and this prestigious 99.99% pure silver coin is a must-have for celebrating that historic occasion, or welcoming any newborn that will be sharing the spotlight with the royal baby of 2013.
After all, every baby is a little prince or princess; the centre of attention as the parents are consumed by naps, feedings, cuddles and play. Those first tender months are a whirlwind time that’s captured in this coin’s ornate ring with all the accoutrements of life with a newborn: baby rattles, plush toys, bibs, soothers, sippy cups, and tiny shoes and socks intermixed with moons and stars. And with a gold-plated cipher at its centre, this coin proudly declares that all tiny babies are special!
The reverse image features the ciphers of the Royal Couple flanked by two Canadian maple leaves, enhanced with 24 karat gold. The accessories of life with a newborn flow along the outer edge of the design: a baby rattle, carriage, tiny shoes, a bib and a plethora of toys flow among hearts and stars. The Royal Canadian Mint pursues the tradition of celebrating Royal events with this delightful keepsake! This beautifully crafted in 99.99% pure silver 36mm pure silver coin portrays well the unique relation Canada maintains with the Royal Family. One of these coins will be fully gold plated and offered in congratulations to the Royal couple from Canada.
