The Perth Mint produces a range of coins each year for investors and collectors. While many of these celebrate native animal species or special moments in national history, some of the coins issued by Perth Mint celebrate special, personal occasions. Among them is a 1/2 oz proof that honors the birth of new life. Today, you have the opportunity to get 2022 Proof Australian Newborn 1/2 oz Silver Coins online at Provident Metals.
Few gifts in this world are as joyous and precious as that of new life. When a new child is born, parents are overwhelmed with joy and the sense of responsibility that comes with guiding a new life through the journey of life. Gift-giving in honor of new life is a common concept and these coins make a great gift to mark the start of a new life.
On the obverse of 2022 Proof Australian Newborn Silver Coins is an effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. The Queen is shown here at the age of 89 with the George IV State Diadem Crown on her head. This design was created in 2015 by Jody Clark and is the first Australian portrait of the Queen since 1966 to include her shoulders in the portrait. Inscriptions on this side include ELIZABETH II, AUSTRALIA, 1/2 OZ 9999 AG, 2022, and 50 CENTS.
The reverse field of 2022 Proof Newborn 1/2 oz Silver Coins features a depiction of a newborn baby. The image shows a white stork flying off in front of the sun in the distance as a small child lies in a purple blanket in the foreground. The baby has a pillow behind its head with brown hair and green eyes. The child is resting in a purple blanket with green ties at either end. The inscriptions on this side read CONGRATULATIONS and the P mint mark of Perth Mint.
One of the enduring tales that parents tell young children is that newborn babies are delivered to the family by a stork. That scene plays out in the reverse design of these coins.
2022 Proof Australian Newborn 1/2 oz Silver Coins are encapsulated and held in a tri-fold presentation card. The card has space to chart the family tree, the details of the newborn baby, and even a family photo.
