Product description

A newborn baby always attracts attention, and his or her close relatives compete to see who give him or her a better gift. The Czech Mint has prepared a gold ducat to the birth of a child for everyone who is looking for original, yet traditional gift.

Our ancestors donated
money for happiness to newborn children. The talisman in the form of a coin made of precious metal was given to a baby in the families of rich nobles and poor peasants, usually by a godfather or godmother. They put the coins in the cradle, therefore, the words "gifted" and "in the blanket" are still used in connection with a gift for a baby to this day. Precious gift was to ensure that the child would not suffer in life. Moreover, it was the first investment in his or her future. The parents of the newborn then cared for her or him until adulthood…

The talented medal maker
Lenka Nebeská, DiS. became the author of the artistic theme of the gold ducat. On the obverse side, there is a sleeping baby, which is held in the hands of his parents, together with the inscription DUKÁT K NARODENIU DIEŤAŤA. The reverse side then belongs to the traditional children's toy - a rocking horse.

The ducat is packed in a gift box together with a certificate of authenticity.
