Details

The arrival of a newborn baby is a wonderful occasion for the whole family.  To capture this precious moment forever, The Perth Mint has released a stunning Newborn Baby coin in a gift card.

According to ancient folklore, a stork delivers a baby to its parents by transporting it in a basket held by the stork’s beak.  As an Australian take on this legend, the coin’s coloured reverse depicts a cute Australian kookaburra carrying a sleeping newborn baby in a swaddling cloth.  A representation of Australian vegetation, the inscription CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR BABY and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark are also incorporated into the design.

The coin is housed in a Australian themed gift card/box, with room to write the baby’s details, a family tree and a place to house a photograph.
