When babies are born into this world, they are pampered and coddled to protect them at their most vulnerable stage of life. For most new parents, a newborn child is carried around from place to place with their infant feet rarely touching the ground, but that doesn’t mean they don’t leave footprints on your hearts. Today, the 2017 ½ oz Silver Canadian Welcome to the World Reverse Proof Coin is available to you online at Silver.com.

One of the first things to happen when a new baby is born is the cataloging of their entry into this world. In addition to weighing, measuring, and bathing baby for the first time, a birth certificate is filled out that often includes footprints of their tiny feet. Like your hand prints, the wrinkle patterns of your feet are unique to you and to your baby as well.
Each of the 2017 ½ oz Silver Canadian Welcome to the World Reverse Proof Coins listed here ship to you in a protective, clear acrylic plastic capsule and presented inside of an elaborate, luxurious gift box that is silver with a pair of baby’s footprints on the top. Included as well is an individually numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
On the obverse of the 2016 ½ oz Silver Canadian Welcome to the World Reverse Proof Coin is the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty has featured on British, Canadian, and other commonwealth coinage since 1952, and this current image in use on Canadian coins comes from Susanna Blunt, who created the design in 2003.
All 2017 Silver Welcome to the World Reverse Proof Coins in this collection are struck in brilliant reverse proof. A reverse proof coin has deeply-mirrored aspects to the design finish and a strong, frosted matte background instead of the traditional proof finishing aspects. Incuse designs, as the footprints are, are set into the surface of the coin rather than protruding outward from it.
The silver coins for sale in this product listing reverse proof strikings. Coins with a reverse proof finish have a strong, frosted background field that is offset by the striking beauty of the deeply-mirrored, clear field of the design sets.
