          Loving the new design. The perfect gift to commemorate the birth of a new child. No other mint in the world offers coins like this specifically for babies so I applaud the RCM for this coin.

          I would have given it 5 stars but I personally feel they are preying on new parents as this coin is more expensive than any of their other plain silver half-ounce coins. Nothing wrong with the coin, just not impressed with the money grab.

                This was a gift from me to my new grandson and his parents. I would have wished you put these out years ago for my other three grandkids. This grandchild had open heart surgery at six days old and now, at nearly four months is developing and doing nicely. The idea of a coin for the newborn is good. The ONLY thing that could possibly be added was to personalize the coin with the child's name.

                  • Q:

                    I was told that these were sold out in July. Why would you not produce more ? There are babies born later in the year and there is also Christmas. If you ended up with too many you could just reject them down. You should at least stock them for 5 years after the date of manufacture.

                      A:

                      acouture - thanks for your feedback. Many of our commemorative coins are limited and have a maximum "mintage" - or total number of coins produced. In this case this coin had a mintage of 15,000 and comes with a serialized certificate which denotes the number of this release (Number XX of 15,000). These coin details are listed in the specifications portion of the product page.
