Theres nothing quite like welcoming a new sweet little baby into the world. The Royal Canadian Mint celebrates this with the release of a special silver coin that captures one of the first moments in any little ones life. The 2017 Canadian Welcome to the World 1/2 oz Silver Coin Reverse Proof contains Troy oz of .9999 pure silver. Each of the coins has been issued a face value of $10, considered to be legal tender backed by the Canadian government. These coins make a lovely and thoughtful gift for new parents. The limited mintage of just 25,000 coins also boosts the collectability of these coins.
One of the first things that happens in hospital settings when babies are born is that their little feet are inked and their footprints placed onto certificates for the new parents. The Royal Canadian Mint captures this special moment with a beautiful incuse design. The 2017 Reverse Proof Canadian Welcome to the World 1/2 oz Silver Coin is delivered in a protective, clear acrylic plastic capsule. The coins are presented inside of an elaborate, silver gift box that features the footprints of a baby on the top. Included with the coin is an individually numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
On the obverse of the 2017 Reverse Proof Canadian Silver Welcome to the World Coin is the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty has featured on British, Canadian, and other commonwealth coinage since 1952, and this current image in use on Canadian coins comes from Susanna Blunt, who created the design in 2003.
The reverse of the 2017 Reverse Proof Canadian Welcome to the World 1/2 oz Silver Coin features a pair of baby footprints. The sweet little footprints have visible wrinkles and lines. The lines on your feet are actually as unique as the fingerprints on the tips of your fingers. Also featured on the reverse of the coin is the face value, year of release and country of release.
Your 2017 Reverse Proof Canadian Welcome to the World 1/2 oz Silver Coin was struck in brilliant reverse proof. A reverse proof coin has deeply-mirrored features to the design finish and a strong, frosted matte background instead of the traditional proof finishing aspects. Incuse designs, as the footprints are, are set into the surface of the coin rather than protruding outward from it.
