Time for a quick poll – who else out there has people on their holiday shopping list that are always impossible to buy for? (I know I’m not the only one!)
You know the type – they already have it all.
So you ask what they’d like, and you hear, “Oh, hmm… I really can’t think of anything – surprise me!”
Or, just maybe, you’re looking for something small yet special to accompany a holiday card or gift card. How about coins as gifts? This year, take some of the gift-buying stress off your shoulders with coin gifts that everyone will love! To help get you started, I’ve pulled together 10 of my favorite items together for you here!
Wrap up your holiday shopping with coin gifts!
- Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus!
This delightful $2 Federal Reserve Note is sure to put the jolly in anyone’s holiday! The talented artists here at Littleton colorized an authentic $2 note with a cheerful image of Santa Claus alongside festive ornaments and holiday cookies. Each note is displayed on a custom-designed matching card with a special Christmas message and room to sign. Not only will it be a great standout in anyone’s holiday card display, but it’s also a fun and memorable gift!
- Take a dive under the sea
Anyone with an interest in the beauty and majesty of our oceans will love this colorized $2 note. Like the Santa note above, it’s also colorized by our artists – though this one features a delicate coral reef as the sun’s rays filter through to highlight its brilliant colors. It also comes in a custom-designed and informative card.
- They’ll never want to let it go…
This is the year for fans of Disney’s animated blockbuster Frozen. Now, take your favorite fan on a magical journey back to Arendelle with this exciting star-shaped ornament! It holds a $1 legal tender coin (struck in 99.9% pure silver) that features Elsa, Anna, Olaf, Kristoff and Sven in perfect full color.
- Nostalgia gets an upgrade
We all played with them as kids – now, give a trip down memory lane with classic interlocking building blocks. But these aren’t the plastic blocks we grew up with… each of the 12 pieces in this set is crafted from a full ounce of 99.9% pure silver!
- These Littleton exclusives are always a favorite!
Each year, our holiday Showpaks® prove to be one of the most popular ways to mark the holidays. The festive backgrounds make a great compliment to either the Silver American Eagle or Native American dollar that they hold!
- For an out-of-this-world gift…
This set is so neat. Start with a custom illustrated folder. Add in 8 colorful “notes” created using a special flatbar minting technology. And voila! Each note is struck in 3 grams of 99.9% pure silver and honors one of the 8 planets in our solar system. This set is colorful, full of great information and makes a truly interesting gift.
- When the only gift you need is a card
If you’re looking to mail out a gift, here’s one that’s compact and easy to send! This warm holiday greeting card would look fantastic on any mantle, and has room inside to write your own personalized message. Plus, it holds five Uncirculated 2019 coins – a Lincoln cent, Jefferson nickel, Roosevelt dime, National Park quarter and Kennedy half dollar.
- A stunning timepiece they’ll always treasure
She’ll love this beautiful watch, which features genuine Swiss quartz movement, is water resistant, has an adjustable link band and is mounted in stainless steel. The watch face is crafted from a Native American dollar, vividly colorized with a brilliant red cardinal perched on pink cherry blossoms.
- Spark collecting interest in the next generation
Introduce a youngster to the hobby with this colorful “Explore and Discover Coin Set”. They’ll meet the Mighty Minters – coin-collecting ambassadors from the U.S. Mint, plus get 6 Uncirculated 2019 coins, a cent blank and a magnifying glass.
- Deck the halls in style!
Wrapping up my list of 10 favorite coin gifts is this beautiful ornament. It holds a 2019 Kennedy half dollar that our artists have colorized with a lovely winter scene.
I hope this list helps you spark some great ideas this holiday season. Who knows – you could even kick off a new tradition of giving coins as gifts!
