First released in 1942,Bambiis one of the major animated classics that cemented the reputation of Walt Disney’s animation studio. Based on a popular book by Australian author Felix Salter and directed by David Hand, it was produced by Walt Disney himself and won three Academy Awards. Following the adventures of a white-tailed deer and his rabbit best friend as they try to stay clear of the threat of Man, it has since become regarded as one of the best animated features ever made. The New Zealand Mint celebrates that legacy with the 2022 Proof Niue Colorized Disney Bambi and Thumper 1 oz Silver Coin.
The 2022 Proof Niue Colorized Disney Bambi and Thumper Silver Coin showcases a mixture of beautiful colorized artwork and the brilliant mirrored backgrounds of a proof-quality collectible. It ships fully insured by Provident Metals in a customized 80th Anniversary display case, and a Certificate of Authenticity on the back confirms your coin’s unique number in the mintage.
The obverse side verifies the coin as legal tender of Niue with a featured effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. It’s joined by the inscriptions “ELIZABETH II,” “NIUE,” “TWO DOLLARS,” and “2022.”
The reverse side presents a brilliantly colorized still of an iconic scene fromBambifeaturing the white-tailed deer and his best friend. Background patches of frosting provide accents of silver to enrich the design.
Chosen for preservation in the Library of Congress’ National Film Registry in 2011,Bambiis widely regarded as the crowning achievement of Walt Disney’s studio and one of the very best animated films ever made. Despite, or perhaps because it touches on more serious subject matter than Disney’s prior fantasy efforts, it has been praised for its elegant treatment of an animal rights-relevant story that presents the threat of Man to wildlife in a way that had previously been unfamiliar.
