The animation studios at Disney have produced multiple widely-acknowledged masterpieces now being celebrated by the New Zealand Mint’s Disney Cinema Masterpieces collectibles. Of all those masterpieces, perhaps one of the most universally adored is the 1940 film Pinocchio. Adapted from a 19th-century Italian children’s novel, this film’s charm and the extraordinary quality of its animation went a long way toward cementing the studio’s reputation for high-quality creative work and children’s entertainment. The 2022 3 oz Silver Proof Colorized Niue Disney Pinocchio Coin commemorates that legacy and is now available from Silver.com.

Containing three Troy ounces of pure silver, the 2022 Proof Colorized Niue Silver Disney Pinocchio Coin is a magnificent piece that would make a perfect gift for any collector or Disney fan. It ships in a high-quality box that features a picture of Pinocchio with the equally-iconic Jiminy Cricket, with an interior casing of black velvet. Its Certificate of Authenticity displays its unique number in its limited mintage.
Pinocchio’s charming adaptation of the original novel’s story, complete with evocative characters, vivid color, and extraordinarily smooth animation work, came together to make for perhaps the greatest of Disney’s many acclaimed outings on the silver screen. Fully capturing all these qualities in coin form is no simple feat, but the dynamic design and artwork of this piece bring it all together.
On the coin’s obverse side is a profile of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, designed by Ian Rank-Broadley and for decades a standard image on Commonwealth coinage around the world. This is accompanied by the inscriptions “ELIZABETH II,” “NIUE,” “TEN DOLLARS,” and “2022.”
The reverse side bears a richly-colorized portrait of Pinocchio by carved by the toymaker Gepetto. The foreground bears a diverse selection of stills from the movie framed in an engraved silver film roll.
