NZ Mint is excited to confirm the release of two new coins to celebrate the 70th Anniversary of Disney’s animated feature film Cinderella (1950). During its original release this fan favourite was one of the highest grossing films of the year.
It tells the rags-to-riches tale of a beautiful girl reduced to being a servant by her jealous Stepmother and Stepsisters, Anastasia and Drizella. With the help of a bit of magic by her Fairy Godmother, Cinderella is given a beautiful dress and use of a magnificent coach and is able to attend a royal ball and inadvertently fall in love with the prince. Fleeing the ball at midnight, the hour when the magic spell is due to end, she leaves behind a glass slipper that the prince and Grand Duke use to search her out. With the help of her little mice and bird friends, she is discovered and assured a happy future
These 1oz pure silver coin and the ¼oz pure gold coin show Cinderella and Prince Charming as they dance through the castle. Both coins are presented in charming packaging incorporating memorable images of the original film, along with the anniversary logo.
Each coin carries an individually numbered Certificate of Authenticity and, with only 1,950 silver coins and 100 gold coins available, you will need to get in quick to secure your memento and make your dreams come true!
