The unique gift series "Crystal Coin" is the result of a combination of traditional Jablonec crafts - the Czech Mint and Preciosa glassworks. The birth of a child is one of the most popular motifs that appear on silver coins with Czech crystal. The original gift for the cradle has been released several times - this time with the year 2022 and a brand new stork motif.

In ancient times, storks were an object of worship all over the world. The noble feathered creatures symbolised piety and justice in ancient Egypt, immortality in China and they brought new life in Europe. The Germanic pagans believed that it was not only frogs that lived in the marshes, which were a favourite delicacy of the stork, but also the souls of unborn children. The storks hunted these souls and placed them in the bodies of the future mothers. Weddings then took place at the celebration of the summer solstice at the end of June, and when the storks returned home from the warm lands in the spring, many newly married women were about to give birth. The notion of the stork bearing children was aided by the fact that he himself was a caring parent who devotedly took care of his offspring. The superstition has survived into modern times and has helped parents avoid delicate conversations with older siblings of newborn children for hundreds of years. Where did the baby come from? A stork brought it! Why is mommy lying in bed? A stork pecked her! The children were happy to accept that explanation…

The reverse side of the commemorative coin, which is the work of medal maker Petra Brodská, DiS., presents a combination of embossed relief, Czech crystal and traditional symbolism. The baby wrapped in a scarf is accompanied not only by a stork but also by a crow, which according to some legends carries baby girls to their parents. The bundle of good luck is carried by balloons, one of which is made of a crystal stone. As the coins of the Czech Mint are issued witrh the license of a foreign issuer, which is the island of Niue, their obverse side bears its necessary attributes - the nominal value of 2 DOLLARS (NZD), the year of issue 2022, the name of Elizabeth II and the portrait of the Queen, which is surrounded by a number of children motifs.

The coin is issued in a limited edition of 1000 pieces. It represents an original, yet traditional gift.

Lady Bugs have been symbols of luck for over 1000 years! Legend says that the lady bug first gained its “Lucky” status when it kept landing on a man’s neck that was sentenced to be executed by the French guillotine. The man proclaimed his innocence and the Lady Bug kept landing on his neck to distract the executioner. It was seen as a divine intervention and spared the man’s life and later he was proven innocent.

The Lady Bug’s legend grew as European farmers prayed for help from pesky insects and Lady Bugs arrived shortly after. They were named after Virgin Mary and have since been a blessing for generations! Many tales about their famous spots have arisen as a way to tell their age or how many years of good luck you will have.

This wonderful 1 oz silver Proof will surely be a good luck token for you! Never before has a Lady Bug been brought onto a coin in such a beautiful way.
