Specifications

Welcoming a baby into the world is a time for joy and celebration. The Perth Mint released the 2014 Newborn Baby coin in a stunning gift card to make the perfect gift for this special occasion. This coin is issued on a mint-to-order basis with the mintage numbers only available after the year is over.

The obverse features the Ian-Rank Broadley effigy of Queen Elizabeth II and the words "Elizabeth II Australia 1/2 oz 999 Silver 2014 50 Cents" and the artist's initials.

The reverse features a depiction of the stork by Aleysha Howarth with an Australian twist. For centuries in Western Folklore parents have been telling their children that babies are delivered by a stork. As an Australian take on the legend the artist has used a cute coloured Kookaburra instead carrying a sleeping newborn in a swaddling cloth. A depiction of Australian vegetation and the words "Congratulations On Your Baby" and the Perth Mint's "P" mint mark complete the design.

The 2014 Newborn Baby coin is encased in an elaborate Australia themed gift card that includes room for a photograph, the babies details and a family tree. This coin makes the perfect gift for anyone born in 2014.
