Coins have long been a traditional gift at key moments in one’s life. As objects which are used and prized in so many different ways, they have inherent nostalgic value for many people.

For parents and children alike, the year of a child’s birth is perhaps the most defining date in one’s life, making baby sets a perennially popular gift item.
