Could you design a Christmas Chibi™ Coin?

Design a Chibi™ Coin & Win Competition! NZ Mint


Give it a go and you could win 10 x 1oz Silver Christmas Chibi Coins featuring your own design. The perfect gift for your friends and family!


All you need to do is send us your Chibi™ Coin design before Monday 19 April. The only criteria is that your Chibi art must have a Christmas theme 🎅🎄 - think reindeer, Santa, snowmen, etc. Let your imagination run wild. We may even share some of the entries on our social media!

If you are not familiar with Chibi, it is a much-loved art style featuring characters with large heads, large eyes, and small bodies. Typically, Chibi characters lack the detail of their normal counterparts. Although if a character has a signature characteristic (odd hair, a particular accessory, etc.) this will typically be prominent on the Chibi version. Check out some of our Chibi Coins as reference here.
