The girl wears long socks in different colours and patterns. It is not a mere symbol of childishness and carelessness – the ability to recognize colours and identify their names is considered an important stage in the child’s cognitive process and a part of the child’s development. What’s more, socks of various colours are now symbolicand carry a particular meaning. For example, different socks are worn on World Down Syndrome Day (March 21st). That is why this coin is also a great gift for someone who is brave, strong in character and loves to break down stereotypes.
The girl and the monkey were chosen as the main characters when creating the reverse of the coin. They both reveal not only the idea of the coin, but also the emotion that the authors wanted to convey. The personality and colours of the girl and the monkey show that childhood is a time of joy and discovery, so it should be enjoyed. The obverse of the product depicts a portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, surrounded by a motif from the reverse side – a long patterned sock.
The coin was made using digital printing and high relief technologies. It is sold in a playful box which is ready to be gifted.
