Coins and gifts of silver have been given at christenings for centuries. A silver coin was both a symbolic and practical gift, given to help the child to a secure start. Silver coins are still believed to bring luck and blessings, the precious metal is an enduring symbol of purity – hence the tradition of ‘crossing the baby’s palm’ with silver. For those wishing to continue this tradition we have the 2014 Lucky Silver Penny. Dated 2014, to mark the important year of the little one’s birth, the coin features its own piece of the familiar Royal Shield design by Matthew Dent. This Brilliant Uncirculated sterling silver coin is housed in charming pink packaging - a gleaming gift for any baby girl, that she will come to treasure as she grows.
