Disney’s animated featureThe Little Mermaidwas the studio’s 28th big screen release, and it defied expectations. It was a retelling of the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale that had its focus on the independent and wilful personality of the title character, here rendered as the royal offspring of the king of the sea. Princess Ariel kept a loving collection of artifacts reclaimed from the surface world above (the most prized being a pipe she called the snarfblatt) and confided to her closest friends her desire to visit the surface world: a desire that became a romance when she saw the human sailor, Eric. The resulting adventure was a box office hit and an indelible cinematic classic, celebrated by the 2022 Proof Niue Colorized Disney Princess Ariel 1 oz Silver Coin.
The 2022 Proof Niue Colorized Disney Princess Ariel Silver Coin sports the brilliant mirrored finish and frosted details of a proof-quality collectible. It ships in a colorful book-style presentation case, protected by an acrylic capsule, along with a Certificate of Authenticity.
The coin’s obverse side features an effigy of the late Queen Elizabeth II to confirm it as legal tender. It is joined by the inscriptions “ELIZABETH II,” “NIUE,” “TWO DOLLARS,” and “2022.”
The coin’s reverse side features Ariel with her best friends Flounder and Sebastian. The ensemble is perched before a cresting wave, and a frosted shell behind the Princess completes the charm of the design.
The New Zealand Mint’s Disney Princess collection celebrates a decades-long history of famous heroines who starred in some of the most influential animated features ever made. With this precious pure silver collectible, they celebrate a Princess who transformed the whole idea of that title. Previous Princesses like Snow White, Cinderella, and Aurora, for all their charm, didn’t really play an active role in their own fates: ultimately their role was to await a Prince. Ariel, by contrast, sought out her Prince and her destiny and transformed the Disney formula in so doing: this retelling of the Hans Christian Andersen fable became the first animated “blockbuster” and won near-universal acclaim from critics and audiences.
