The Lion King has been a sensation in popular culture right from the beginning: it debuted to critical and popular acclaim and founded a powerhouse media franchise. It garnered more than thirty awards and accolades — including a pair of Academy Awards — and spawned six more animated features, a popular CGI-driven “live-action” remake, and a hit Broadway musical. Through it all, the original animated film remains perennially popular with both children and adults.
Now, avid fans and enthusiasts of high-quality bullion coins can return to the original Pride Rock with the 2022 Proof Niue Colorized Silver Disney The Lion King Coin. This gorgeous collectible features the brilliant mirror backgrounds and arresting high-relief engraving of a proof-quality coin. It ships in a secure, high-quality acrylic capsule inside a themed Disney Cinematic Masterpieces box featuring images of Simba. A Certificate of Authenticity verifies its unique number in a limited mintage of just two thousand pieces worldwide.
Ian Rank-Broadley’s effigy of Queen Elizabeth II appears on the coin’s obverse side to confirm it as legal tender. It’s accompanied by the inscriptions “Elizabeth II,” “Niue,” “Ten Dollars,” and “2022.”
The reverse side features vivid colorized artwork, dominated by an image of Simba’s royal father Mufasa, his mother Sarabi, and the infant cub himself. The coin’s lower rim bears a film-reel montage of five more iconic moments from The Lion King.
