Our ancestors used to give coins to newborn baby. Therefore, the Czech Mint have been minting silver tolars and gold ducats for years. A silver coin from the unique Crystal Coin collection complements the offer of birth gifts in 2021.

Celebrations of a new birth
 take different forms in different countries. Americans celebrate in advance, so the party takes place three weeks before childbirth and it is accompanied by a wealth of useful gifts. In Germany, on the contrary, they believe that giving presents or organizing celebrations before the baby is born brings bad luck. Russians, like Americans, enjoy practical things, therefore, congratulators often take care of the complete kit. Mexicans carry cigars into the families where the baby boy was born, otherwise the gift is chocolate. They also enjoy special sweet gifts in the Netherlands, Belgium or Iran. And what about theCzechs? They began to rediscover the magic of a precious metal coin given in the cradle. But most mothers, regardless of nationality, certainly agree that organizing the celebrations is the last thing they think about before and after coming back from the maternity hospital. On the contrary, almost any culture must not miss daddy's drinking …

The reverse side of the commemorative coin presents a combination of embossed relief, 
cut Bohemian crystal and traditional symbolism. The feet of a newborn baby are tiny, fragile, and cute - they grow like a weed and commemorate the moment of how tiny the baby was when his parents brought it home. The coin was processed by medal maker Irena Hradecká, DiS. The legs complement other children motifs along with an Czech-English inscription K NAROZENÍ DÍTĚTE - NEWBORN BABY. Since the Czech Mint coins are issued with the license of a foreign issuer, the island of Niue, their obverse sides bear its necessary attributes - the nominal value of 2 DOLLARS (NZD), the year of the issue 2021, the name of Elizabeth II. and the portrait of Queen surrounded by a series of footprints.

The 2021 coin comes in a limited edition of 600 pieces and presents an 
original yet traditional gift.
