The second coin from the exciting new Disney Princess coin series features the beautiful Princess Aurora, the star of Disney’s 1959 animated film, Sleeping Beauty.
Sleeping Beauty was based on The Beauty Sleeping in the Wood by Charles Perrault and Dornröschen by The Brothers Grimm. Perrault called his heroine Aurora, while the Grimms’ “Little Briar Rose” referred to their princess as Briar Rose. In their 1959 animation Sleeping Beauty, Disney used both names.
Each coin is meticulously struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver in proof quality.
The reverse design features Princess Aurora in colour surrounded by classically struck flowers.
