THE LION KING 4x1oz Silver Coin Set
This coin collection for The Lion King celebrates 25 years of the much-loved Disney classic, which was released on 15 June 1994.
The Lion King, one of the highest-grossing films of all time, was released on 15 June 1994 in New York and Los Angeles (it would open in wide release on June 24). Today, almost everyone in the world knows the story of the young lion cub Simba, who tries to find his place in the circle of life and follow the long, honourable shadow cast by his father, King Mufasa, after he is killed by his vengeful brother Scar.
There are four 1 oz pure silver coins in the collection. Each coin features a full-colour image of Simba in a key scene from the film namely; Simba surveying the Pride Lands with his father Mufasa, Rafiki lifting Simba for all the kingdom to see, Simba nuzzling Nala, singing with friends Timon the meerkat and Pumbaa the warthog. Background elements have been engraved for contrast.
Each coin features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse and the mintage year 2019, confirming its authenticity as a 25th anniversary legal tender memento.
All four coins are nestled in red velvet inside story-book style packaging decorated with stirring images from the movie. A separate Certificate of Authenticity is placed inside the front cover confirming the worldwide mintage of only 5,000 coin sets.
