Disney $2, 1 OZ of Silver Coin, 2015, Princess Aurora Sleeping Beauty
The second release in the Disney Princess Coin Collection from New Zealand Mint is the Disney Silver Coin - Aurora. This stunning, coloured silver coin features the elegant, graceful Princess Aurora, her gorgeous golden hair flowing, set against a proof quality background surrounded by relief engraved flowers.
The gentle and beautiful Princess Aurora, otherwise known as Briar Rose, is best known for her beauty and kindness. Being romantic at heart, she is determined to find her true love. Sleeping Beauty tells the story of Princess Aurora and Maleficent, the evil fairy who cast a dark spell over her at birth, declaring that before Aurora reaches her sixteenth birthday she will die by pricking her finger on the spindle of a spinning-wheel.
With the help of Aurora’s three guardian fairies, Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather, the curse is altered so that Aurora will instead fall into a deep, enchanted sleep, from which she can only be woken by the kiss of her true love.
