Princess Mulan image featured on new Disney collectible coins

Mulan struggles to assume the traditional role of a Chinese woman in order to please her parents, but her cheerful nature and bold spirit get in the way. When China is invaded, Mulan disguises herself as a man to join the army in her father’s place. Despite being helped by new friends, Mulan’s extraordinary actions were discovered and led to her eventual banishment. When all seems lost, Mulan’s determination, grace and heart lead her to fight against all odds, defeating the dreadful Hun invaders, and bringing honour to her family. Based on an ancient Chinese folktale, Mulan was Disney’s 36th full-length animated feature film. As preparation, a core group of Disney creatives spent 3 weeks in China to channel its unique culture and style into the film.

NZ Mint has released 2 new Disney Princess coins – Mulan 1 oz Silver coin and Mulan 1/4 oz Gold coin in unique themed packaging which any Disney fan or coin collector is sure to enjoy – see these stunning coins here.
