The 17th animated movie classic from Disney came out in 1961, and won acclaim from both audiences and critics for its charming and inspiring tale of a group of adorable Dalmatian puppies on the run from an especially dastardly villain. One Hundred and One Dalmatians not only introduced audiences to the much-beloved dogs of the title, but also to one of the most iconic antagonists in Disney history. Cruella De Vil lived up to the wordplay on “cruel” and “devil” that comprised her name, a tyrannical heiress of a fallen family who was determined to turn the Dalmatians into a fur coat. Voiced in the film by actress Betty Lou Gerson, De Vil was the kind of villain audiences loved to hate, and has made a strong impression ever since. She’s commemorated in vivid color with the 2022 1 oz Proof Colorized Niue Silver Disney 101 Dalmatians Cruella Coin.

101 Dalmatians was an immediate hit when it was first released, generally seen as the best Disney feature since Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. This was in part because of its overall subtlety and quiet charm, but also because of the counterpart to those qualities provided by the outlandish and larger-than-life villainess, Cruella De Vil.
The 2022 Proof Colorized Niue Silver Disney 101 Dalmatians Cruella Coin features gorgeous colorized artwork with touches of frosted engraving that accentuate its mirrored, proof-quality finish. It ships fully insured in a themed box, secured in an acrylic capsule, and accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.
The coin’s reverse side features Cruella De Vil at the wheel of her automobile and in pursuit of the adorable Dalmatians. Touches of engraved and partially-frosted detail appear on the mountains in the background.
The obverse side features Ian Rank-Broadley’s famous effigy of the late Queen Elizabeth II, confirming the coin as legal tender. This is accompanied by the inscriptions “ELIZABETH II,” “NIUE,” “TWO DOLLARS,” and “2022.”
