If you’re looking for the perfect gift, consider a coin set from the Royal Canadian Mint. These commemorative coins are specifically designed to celebrate important life moments and also bear the year of their minting. Serious coin collectors and newcomers to the hobby can appreciate these beautiful and unique gifts.
Baby Five-Coin Gift Card Set
Whether you’re looking for a baby shower gift, a present for new parents or the perfect first birthday surprise, you can’t go wrong with the Baby Gift Card Set. This package contains five coins in denominations of $1, $2, 5 cents, 10 cents and 25 cents. The $1 coin features Steve Hepburn’s art on the reserve side: alphabet blocks and a cute stuffed moose.
The coins come inside an adorable gift card with room for personalization:
- Birth measurements
- Child’s name
- Birthday message
Due to the rarity of these coins, they’re expected to increase in value, making them a gift that keeps on giving.
Birthday Five-Coin Gift Card Set
What’s the best way to celebrate the birthday of the coin collector in your life? The answer is a commemorative set.
The Birthday Gift Card Set contains five uncirculated coins, similar to the Baby Gift Card Set.
Since only 100,000 sets exist, these coins should grow in value. The dollar coin, which features a moose instead of the traditional loon, is sure to interest those who seek rare additions to their collections.
O Canada Gift Set
The O Canada Gift Set is a great way to celebrate Canada while investing in your coin collection. Each stylized coin boasts exceptional quality and composition:
- The 5-cent, 10-cent and 25-cent coins are plated steel in a three-ply nickel finish.
- The $1 coin is plated steel in a three-ply brass finish. The design features the popular and iconic Canadian Moose. Strung across the Moose antlers you will see a banner with the national flag’s stylized maple leaf.
- The $2 coin is aluminum bronze plated in a three-ply brass finish at the core and steel with a three-ply nickel finish on the outer ring.
The $1 and 5-cent coins have plain edges, the 10-cent and 25-cent coins have serrated edges and the $2 coin has interrupted serrated edges.
$10 Welcome to the World Baby Feet Coin Gift Set
Has someone you know just welcomed a bundle of joy into the world? If so, the $10 Welcome to the World Baby Feet Gift Set is an excellent way to share your excitement.
Baby footprints started as a practical way to ensure infants went home with the right parents. Since the 1960s, birth certificates have sported a cute set of tiny feet, and the image is now a symbol of new parenthood and happy families. Caregivers now get prints of their children’s feet for photo albums and other mementos.
This gift set takes this tradition to the next level. The coin is 34 mm in diameter and 99.99% pure silver. Instead of a raised relief, two perfect baby footprints are struck incuse into the surface. With a face value of $10, this commemorative coin comes with a full-colour certificate and keepsake box.
