The welcoming of a newborn baby into the world can be one of the most joyful and memorable experiences in your life. The birth of a baby is celebrated with various customs and traditions to mark a new beginning for the whole family. In India, precious metals especially silver plays a significant role in welcoming newborn babies into the world.
Silver coins and bars make a perfect gift for newborn babies, especially during enduring ceremonies like Jatakarma - welcoming of the child into the family, Namakarna - naming ceremony, Nishkarmana - the child's first trip out, Annaprasana - the child's first taste of solid food, Karnavedha - ear-piercing ceremony, and Mundan - first haircut and Upanayana - sacred thread. Gifting silver coins and bars in these traditional customs has deeper meanings in Indian culture.
Here are some of the reasons why silver bars and coins are considered a perfect gift for newborn babies:
A way to wish good health
Gifting silver is traditionally considered a way to wish the newborn baby wealth and good health throughout their life. While adding to the celebrations, a silver coin or bar is also the perfect way to wish for the best possible start in the life of the newborn baby. Gifting gold coins or bars to the newborn baby is traditionally seen as a way of wishing for wealth and prosperity in the adult years. This common tradition of gifting silver coins to newborn babies is followed not only by the immediate family but friends and relatives as well. The traditional and meaningful custom of presenting silver bars and coins to a newborn baby has become widely popular all across India.
A token of love and appreciation
It is a time of joy and celebration when you welcome a newborn baby into the world. There is nothing like an exclusive silver bar or coin to express your love and appreciation for a newborn baby in your family or friends. A personalised silver bar or coin would be an adorable gift that will be cherished for years to come. As silver bars and coins hold great value, it is worth gifting on their most special moment so that they will adore them for life. The silver mints will be the perfect gift to celebrate the special bonds in your life. Gifting silver is a good gesture to show that you want to gift a costly keepsake and wish well for the baby’s health.
Gift precious metal in its utmost purity
A precious metal bar or coin is better than gold jewellery to gift a newborn baby as it ensures the highest purity. A beautifully engraved 999.9% pure silver or gold coin will be an ideal gift that can be cherished for years without losing its value. This can be used for the baby in future to make teenage jewellery like gold pendants or earrings.
