Canada Mint's Baby Feet Coin

29 Jan 2021  Fri

During its first precious months, baby’s tiny feet barely touch the ground. They are carried and cuddled, tickled and kissed as they wiggle and curl with joy. Canada Mint issued a special keepsake to welcome a 2019 baby to the world. Canada Mint issued a special edition coin worth 10 Dollars in the year 2019.

This endearing coin captures the essence of that happy time with a heart-warming design of baby feet struck incuse into the coin, like footprints in the sand. But unlike sand that shifts and fades with time, these imprints are pure silver and last forever!

The coin features a traditional cast of a baby's feet in the mirror-like finish. It also features a pair of baby's feet to commemorate the birth of a new baby, and uses a reverse proof finish so that the baby's feet stand out with a mirror-like finish! The obverse, on the other hand, features the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II.
