Don't be late for this one!

NZ Mint is excited share with you news of the release of Disney's Alice In Wonderland Coin Collection!

The collection celebrates the much-loved Disney film, which was released on 26 July 1951. Based on Lewis Carroll’s famous story, the film was not well received by everyone on its initial release; however, the film proved to be ahead of its time and has since been regarded as one of Disney's greatest animated classics.

The film had been on Walt Disney's mind since 1933 but the project was shelved after Paramount Pictures made a live-action version. He later had Hollywood artist and designer, David Hall, create concepts for an all-animated film. However, World War II intervened and it wasn't until the late 1940s that work began again in earnest. A family friendly musical, it featured songs like "All in the Golden Afternoon", "I'm Late" and "The Unbirthday Song". The film was nominated for an Academy Award® for Best Scoring of a Musical Picture.

There are four 1 oz fine silver coins in the collection. Each coin features a classic image of key characters from the film, including Alice, the Cheshire Cat, the Mad Hatter and March Hare, as well as the Queen of Hearts. The artwork for all four coins is featured in full colour with selected engraving.

The coins are nestled in velvet inside matching story-book style packaging. The front cover is decorated with striking gold-coloured foil images inspired by Disney's Alice in Wonderland. The Certificate of Authenticity is shaped to mirror Alice's silhouette and is found inside the front cover.

This unique set would make a great addition to any Disney fan's or coin connoisseur's collection. Don't be late to the party and order yours now!
