The Canadian Mint has produced many new collections of coins for Christmas this year.
The two that caught my eye were the 2006 Baby Coin Gift Set and 2006 Commemorative Holiday Coin Set. Both of these sets would be a great gift for baby’s first Christmas.
The Baby Coin Gift Set includes a $2 coin, $1 coin, .50 cent piece, Quarter, Dime, Nickel, Penny and a soothing instrumental lullabies CD. The set features an authentic Royal Canadian Mint Sterling dollar coin with a teddy bear, stars and a half moon inset at the top of it. The packing includes a section where the babies information can filled in. $29.95 CAD available at the The Royal Canadian Mint.
The third edition of the 2006 Commemorative Holiday Coin Set features a special a 25- cent coin painted with Santa Claus and Rudolph, which will only be available in this set. The set includes a $2 coin, $1 coin, .50 cent piece, Quarter, Dime, Nickel and Penny. This set is great for any child. You could help there start a collection of coins and make this a yearly gift. $19.95 CAD available at The Royal Canadian Mint.
