Today our officially licensed coin collection for Disney's great animated classic, Alice in Wonderland, concludes. This fourth and final coin celebrates the much-loved 1951 Disney film’s 70th anniversary!
A full 1oz of pure silver, the coin features Alice with the playful Tweedledee & Tweedledum. In the movie, Alice comes across Tweedledee and Tweedledum while she is chasing after the White Rabbit. The coin shows a coloured image of the three of them, which is offset by a frost and mirror finish background to let the silver shine. The Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is captured on the obverse.
In the movie, Tweedledum and Tweedledee are portrayed as two identical, rotund little men. Although it’s often assumed that the two characters are twins, they might alternatively be viewed as mirror-images of each other, especially since they often say the same thing at the same time! Unusually dressed in red caps with flags on top, they take delight in reciting poems and songs. They are playful and jolly and will always insist on a little game! Interestingly Tweedledee and Tweedledum did not actually appear in Lewis Carroll’s original novel, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, but in its sequel Alice Through the Looking Glass.
Packaged in a themed box featuring Tweedledee & Tweedledum, the coin is placed in its own acrylic display block, along with a Certificate of Authenticity confirming it as legal tender. With a limited mintage of only 2,000 worldwide, don’t miss out - the world of Wonderland is calling for one last time!
