Collecting coins is a lifelong hobby that brings great joy and satisfaction to numerous individuals. Yet, what numismatist wouldn’t want to share their coin passion with the young ones in their life? The real challenge lies in finding an engaging approach to introduce collectible coins to the younger generation.

Disney Princess Stocking Stuffer Coins
The New Zealand Mint has been producing stunning collectible coins for the tiny country of Niue since 2008. In 2015 and 2016 NZM minted an extensive line of silver coins celebrating Disney’s most iconic princesses.
Each Disney Princess coin depicts a beautifully colourized image of the princess overlaid on a background of scattered flowers or foliage on the reverse. The obverse features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Several princess coins are available including these:
- Snow White from “Snow White and the Seven Dwarves”

Not only would these be perfect stocking stuffer coins, but they could also inspire your child’s first coin collection.

What child isn’t fascinated by dinosaurs? In collaboration with the Canadian Museum of Nature, the Royal Canadian Mint has produced three amazing dinosaur coins. The colourized coins use a holographic effect that offers two different thrilling scenes of each prehistoric giant. The coins come in a colourful folder that includes six trading cards, making them very special stocking stuffer coins for kids.
The Royal Canadian Mint offers a captivating three-coin set of engraved 25-cent coins, showcasing three remarkable dinosaurs discovered in the Horseshoe Canyon Formation located in the fossil-rich province of Alberta. Encased in a unique pop-up folder, these coins beautifully capture the essence of these ancient creatures.
