The Little Mermaid was the 28th animated feature film produced by Disney. It told a tale of a forbidden romance between a mermaid princess, Ariel, and a human of the surface world, and of her quest to become human herself. On release, it went on to become the first bona fide animated blockbuster, earning over $100 million at the box office and winning near-universal acclaim for its lavish production values, its sense of creativity and fun, and the winning character of Ariel herself. The feisty and independent mermaid is celebrated by the New Zealand Mint with the 2022 1 oz Proof Niue Colorized Silver Disney Princess Ariel Coin, now available from JM Bullion.

Ariel was a notable development in the line of famous Disney Princess characters: a Princess who seized control of her own destiny and who was defined by her sassy, assertive personality. Even if this led her into the clutches of the evil Sea-Witch, Ursula, it also led to her ultimate triumph in one of Disney’s most famously jolly and wildly creative animated outings. It remains a classic retelling of the original Hans Christian Andersen fable.
The 2022 Proof Niue Colorized Silver Disney Princess Ariel Coin features an extraordinary image of Ariel and ships in a vivid and beautiful book-style presentation case, secured in an acrylic capsule. It sports the mirrored finish and frosted details of a proof-quality collectible, and each coin comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.
The coin’s reverse side features a scene of Ariel perched on a rock before a cresting wave, along with her best friends Flounder and Sebastian. A frosted shell behind her adds to the charm and detail of the design.
The obverse side features the globally recognized Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of the late monarch Queen Elizabeth II, confirming this coin as legal tender. It’s accompanied by the inscriptions “ELIZABETH II,” “NIUE,” “TWO DOLLARS,” and “2022.”
