There are those who would scoff at the idea of gifting children Precious Metal products. They may wonder why anyone would purposefully give a kid something so valuable. However, getting children interested in Precious Metal collecting is a great way to set them on the path to becoming Precious Metal investors.
Putting an exciting coin in a child’s hand could be a crucial first step toward lifelong financial literacy and stability. So, what Precious Metal item could you present to a child that is both appropriate and enjoyable? Let’s look at some possible gift items for the young people in your life.
An excellent guide to selecting what Precious Metal item might interest the young person in your life is the young person himself! There is an appropriate coin for every imaginable interest.
Is your son going through a Batman phase? There is a 2014 Niue 2 oz Silver 75 Years of Batman Proof coin that would make his jaw drop. Perhaps your daughter recently announced her plan to pursue marine biology. Show your belief in her dreams with a gorgeous 2015 Niue 1 oz Silver $2 Ocean Predators Giant Squid.
Anything your child might love, from sailboats to elephants, is featured on a coin available from APMEX. Presenting your child with a token representing their interests will show them you listen and share in their hopes and plans.
Personal Commemorative Items
Is your family taking that long-awaited trip to Disneyworld this year? You might consider presenting your child with a fun 2014 Niue 1 oz Silver $2 Disney Mickey Mouse coin, either as part of sharing the news of the trip or as a coming-home keepsake. Mementos such as these become sentimental favorites but are also valuable Precious Metal products.
Perhaps your teen completed a rigorous French foreign language exchange this year. You may give her this unusual 2014 British Virgin Islands 1 oz Silver 125th Anniversary Eiffel Tower coin. The only limit to what you can commemorate or celebrate is your own imagination. There is always a Precious Metals product appropriate to your family’s occasion.
