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 the 2016 Newborn Baby coin in a stunning gift card with room to record your baby’s details.

This will be a treasured keepsake for years to come.

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.  A representation of Australian foilage, the inscription CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR BABY and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark are also incorporated into the design.

The coin is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, and features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the monetary denomination, and the 2016 year-date on its obverse.
